An Adelaide trainee pilot has fallen unconscious for 40 minutes mid-flight after missing breakfast, prompting an investigation from aviation authorities.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has released an occurrence brief following the incident.
The pilot, who was flying a Diamond DA40, said he had a "restless night's sleep" and had not eaten breakfast before departing from Port Augusta Airport on March 9.
During the flight, he had a bottle of Gatorade, some water and a chocolate bar - but that was not enough to keep him conscious.
He fell unconscious around 40 minutes into the flight, sitting at about 5,500ft, and remained in that state for a further 40 minutes, infringing Adelaide Airport's controlled airspace.
