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...

If you’re approaching the holidays dreading the visit to the folks back home, maybe it’s not your relatives that make you hesitate about the flying.   Maybe it’s fear of flying that’s hanging over your head, making you apprehensive about the once-yearly holiday flight. In a survey on Fearless Flight.com conducted a few months ago, 35% of the almost 5,000 who responded said ...

Our new poll “What’s the Scariest Part of Flying” has been up on FearlessFlight.com for about a month.  Almost 900 people have voted.  Many more people have looked at the choices of the poll and have apparently been too afraid to even enter their opinion.   Takeoffs…YIKES!  Landings…Oh MY!  Turbulence…HOLY cow! ...

My friend Windy is flying tomorrow, and I’m afraid for her.  I’m not afraid that her plane will crash.  No, I know that flying is the safest way to travel on the planet.  I’m afraid she’ll have a horrible flight because she’s flying with a friend who has a fear of flying. Windy and I have had a few conversations about this friend.  And Windy has had a few conversations with...

Once you’re over your fear of flying, your trips can be like the kind former fearful flyer Rochell just emailed me about.  Rochell just flew from Sydney to Hong Kong, her first overseas flight in 8 years! “Am pleased to report that I had the best experience ever! I was even able to enjoy my holiday and not be filled with dread at the thought of having to get on a plane to return...

People with a fear of flying tend to spend a lot of time worrying about things that can go wrong.  I like to call them the “what if’s” of fear of flying: What if we crash? What if the plane’s too heavy to get off the ground? What if there’s turbulence and the plane can’t take it? What if I can’t take it and have a panic attack on board? And the ultimate…what if I...

People constantly ask us what’s the best way to get over their fear of flying.  We always tell them that ultimately “you gotta fly to get over it.” Well, one guy took that advice to heart..or rather to the air, over and over again.  Perhaps you heard of Mark Malkoff who decided to spend a month on a plane to overcome his fear of flying.  Throughout the month of June, he took 135...

Of course fear of flying is real!  Listen to this email: I am going to Cancun for spring break this year. I have been on a plane about two other times but it seems the older I get the harder it is to fly. While I’m in the air I have major axiety and I just think of the worst that could happen! I try thinking of happy things but then bad things pop in my head. all the other flights I’ve...

Fear of flying leads people to do strange things. Avoid flying. Drive for miles and miles. Take trains. Dread vacations and honeymoons. Hate turbulence. Bolt off a plane just before the door closes. But for a man in Scotland, his fear of flying was so bad, he could barely walk off the plane. This last behavior may sound strange for a fearful flyer. Landing is cause for celebration: ...

The show Inside Edition asked for people to call in and report whether or not the miracle flight of US Airways yesterday made them reluctant to fly.  While some of the US Airways plane still sits in the Hudson River, I’m happy to report that fearful flyers I’ve talked to today are reporting that they are no longer “sitting” in their fear of flying. Keep in mind that the people...
