Terrified of flying? see this website

I came across this website as I am off on hols this week and am petrified of flying particularly turbulence as I don't understand what it is.
This site explains every noise and condition that occurs while flying.
I hope it helps someone else, as my mind has been put at ease somewhat.
I know they are selling there products but a lot of it is free to use.

I was just thinking that it had omitted terrorism.

I think most people's fear of flying is actually the fear of death. At the moment I can say I have fear of neither, but hope that I don't find myself in plane that is nosediving.

No, I think it is about someone else having control over their life... they aren't driving they have no control if the plane flies or falls... its about relinquishing that control and just trusting it'll be fine.

Hard for some people to do.

Me I love it, I shout eureka in any situation I dont have to take responsibility lol

OP, I hope you enjoy your flight, take with you something that CALMS you.... a bottle of your fav perfume, stress balls, your partner and hold onto that if you get scared x x x

My problem is I have a fear of heights, fear of confined spaces and fear or dying.

Flying is definitely a no-no for me, last time I flew we had severe turbulance, dropped several thousand feet, air steward was knocked out and then had to suffer 8 more hours of turbulance all the way home. And to cap it all, the pilot botched the landing and after putting one wheel down had to take off again and go around for another go!!!!

NEVER AGAIN :shock:

sounds awful, I've never had an experience like that.

worst thing I've experienced was this spoilt selfish woman who wanted to take the whole row of five seats at the front instead of sitting two in front and three seats behind, she was nagging me for half the flight if I would move with her... got totally on my nerves and I made a complaint to BA and received a cheque back for £75!

Have experienced turbulence a few times but never seen anyone KO by it!!

With whom did you fly?

I think flying is brill especially the power on take off.

I do hope you enjoy your flight Wild Child and that it is a smooth one.:thumbsup:

Just a thought! a few years ago i used to go to gatwick and fly the simulators there, i did this on five occasions it is quite expensive but you get $0mins each time and it is all hands on and fantastic fun and its completley safe yet you can fly in any situation. I think the cost was about £240 for 40mins and you get certificates at the end and print outs of your flight paths etc:)

Sorry, had to put kids to bed, It was Brittania Airways I think.

Didn't mean to put anyone off, just telling my story.

I'm just a scaredy cat, hasn't put my OH off, in fact he flies every week so it can't have been that bad. The Airline did say it was very RARE to hit turbulance that bad, and my OH hasn't had any since and that was 9 years ago.

I travel by Eurostar now if we want to go to Europe, and there's always boats if we want to go further.

I actually looked at that site a few weeks ago as I was heading to the Caribbean with my partner, my one year old son, my two 8 year old nieces and my sister. my sister had never flown before and was very scared.. it really helped her & she absolutely loved the 9 hour flight :)

I think a fear of flying stems simply from the lack of control and the fact if anything serious goes wrong you're probably going to die whereas on the road there is a chance to save it. Personally I enjoy flying as I like the feel of the plane going up the runway and taking off (although admittedly less so these days now I have a faster car) as well as the deceleration and thumping down to land. I had no doubts flying over to the US after that plane recently crashed in the Atlantic.

I have watched a lot of Aircraft Investigation though which to me helps as I find it reassuring to know how many of these potential problems have been resolved as well as gain confidence in how thorough the entire system is. I honestly feel a lot more concerned for my life when driving a car/motorbike as you never what idiots are out on the road nor what state the road itself is in - had far more near misses there than on a plane.

I LOVE flying, it's a major part of the enjoyment of my holiday.
I have been flying since i was 5 years old when i flew to america to see my dad on my own. It was brilliant!!!
The stewardesses continually makin a fuss of me, playing games with me and I was 1st off the plane.
I was even moved into 1st class by the stewardesses lol.
Wish i could get all that now!
Love the thrill of it all.
You really do have much more chance of dying on the road.
