If you have a fear of flying, you’ll enjoy travel expert Pauline Frommer’s interview of Capt. Ron on 4/5/09 for syndicated radio station WOR’s The Travel Show. During the five-minute interview, Capt. Ron presents some interesting statistics about fear of flying.  He talks about the steps associated with overcoming fear of flying as well as his secret and “most successful” tip...

If’ you’re a fearful flyer (and it’s likely that you are considering you’re reading this post), which would you pick: Door #1, Having a Root Canal? or Door #2, Flying on an Airplane? If you picked the root canal, this is your lucky week!  March 29 to April 4 is National Root Canal Awareness Week, and you are just one representative of  people surveyed who said they would...

Is your fear of flying getting better or worse?  After the successful outcome of the Miracle on the Hudson Flight,  I posted a poll on Fearless Flight.com to take the fear of flying “temperature” of site visitors.   Presumably the visitors are fearful flyers.  Since I’ve posted the poll, there have been two other not-so-miraculous crashes.  Definitely not good PR for the flying...

People who are afraid to fly all have something in common, a fear of crashing.  They ask:  What’s my chance of dying?  When I saw an article about fatality rates on the front page of today’s Arizona Republic, I thought of all our FearlessFlight.com visitors who worry about crashes. Here’s the headline that caught my eye:  “Fatality Rate on Arizona Roads at Record Low.”  I was...

People who are afraid to fly like to dwell on airplane crashes.  Imagine that! Okay, so yes, I’ll admit it.  Airplanes do crash.  But the likelihood of it happening to the one you’re on is pretty slim.  The latest airplane crash statistics show that your kid has a better chance of growing up to be President of the United States than you have of dying in a plane crash. So let’s...

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...

Takeoffs, turbulence, thunderstorms…fearful flyers worry about a lot of the same things. This week, Mother Nature delivered a new twist to the fear of flying worry list:  a volcano and volcanic ash from the eruption in Iceland. Exactly what is the big deal with this big white cloud that has grounded so many passengers? What was it that made flying so bad that 95,000 flights were canceled...

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...

PBS Frontline aired an excellent documentary recently called “Flying Cheap.” It highlighted the problems with regional airlines—those airlines that supplement major airlines by flying routes not profitable to fly with larger planes.  Frontline chose to air the program on the anniversary of the Colgan Air crash near Buffalo, NY. I was surprised when I saw the special.  And if I was...
