I recall taking an uncle to Chicago’s O’Hare airport in 1959 as he was leaving for basic training having joined the Navy. We parked the car in the O’Hare parking lot, walked into the terminal and all the way to the gate without seeing as much as a single police officer. Hard as it is to believe, airport security and screening wasn’t on anyone’s radar in those days. The first hijacking...

Received this message from a new subscriber: Flying scares me because I am always worried that something will go wrong. Turbulence makes me very nervous and I freeze up. I can't do anything during turbulence except look out the window and wait until it stops.  Landing doesn't scare me because I know the flight will be over soon. I am also relaxed when the flight is cruising at altitude and...

In response to the question asked of all new subscribers, “What about flying scares you the most?” I received the following: “Take off, hitting an air pocket, and turbulence scares me. I think it's not having control of the situation.” Takeoff is at the top of most fearful flyer’s list of things they most fear. In attempting to resolve issues like these mentioned above, I emphasize...

I get emails daily from fearful flyers who express some manifestation of their fear. Here’s one I received today: What happens when the plane is cruising down the runway, or in standby for take off etc,,, and I'm thinking " Oh no, now I can't get out of this" How can I change that thought? [even] watching videos of take offs I feel that to the point where I feel like I "freeze up" and can't...

Research supports has shown that eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is effective in treating trauma. If you know anything about my experience helping people overcome fear of flying, it’s my belief that many, if not most, have trauma somewhere in their history. For those unfamiliar with EMDR, imagine recalling a traumatic memory while tracking a high speed ping pong match...

I’ve observed that overcoming fear of flying is a process. There are no “quick fixes.” Recently I received the following email from Suzanne, another traveler on her path to flying fearlessly, that illustrates this in detail. Hello, I want to thank you for your help over the past 4 years and pass on this review of your materials to other fearful fliers. I flew often as a child and loved...

Overcoming Fear of Flying as Inflight Entertainment? Just about ten years ago I approached a senior executive at a major airline about including a copy of my FearlessFlightTM Harmonizer on the inflight entertainment system. After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from so many fearful flyers, it seemed logical to offer something that was both informative and distracting. I’ll...

…Put Your Mask on First and then… How many times have you heard that briefing in preparation for past flights? I gave a couple of local TV interviews here in the Phoenix area recently. I'm disappointed by the choice of words used in media reports about the recent Southwest Flt 812 incident: "Terrifying," "loud bang," "hole ripped in ceiling," “thought I was going to die," etc. I...

Last week an Air Traffic Controller admitted falling asleep during his shift. Of course this incident was widely reported in the media. That it would receive such coverage is a given. However, it’s the implications for fearful flyers and the general public that concern me. The role of the tower controller is to control air traffic inside the “airport traffic area”—usually a radius of...
