First Lt. Tasha, MQ-9 Reaper pilot, explains how the Air Force flight suit is made for men to use the restroom in flight but has not accommodated women’s needs, and how that affects their health and mission readiness at Creech Air Force Base, Nev., March 26, 2021. Tasha and other panelists shared stories about how female aircrew members have commonly dehydrated themselves before flying so they wouldn’t need to use the restroom which can lead to them getting sick and unable to fly.
