Earasing Your Fear of Flying with Some Factual Evidence
Does the thought of being 35,000 feet up in the air give you anxiety? Do you have trouble sleeping the night before a flight? Does turbulence make your mind race and your palms sweaty? If so, don’t be alarmed. There are many who consider themselves to be nervous flyers who simply do not like being in an airplane thousands of feet up in the air. However, at some point flying is usually necessary and there are ways to combat nervousness on flights. If you have trouble with flying, here are some facts that may ease your flying experience:
• Know the facts: Flying is actually the safest way to travel and is much safer than driving a car. There are tens of thousands of car accidents every year but hasn’t been a commercial plane crash in the U.S. in years. Therefore, the statistics are in your favor.
• Forget turbulence: Turbulence is almost universally loathed by travelers, not just nervous flyers. However, it’s important to note that it’s nearly impossible for turbulence to bring down a plane. Even extreme turbulence, which is rare and avoidable, will have trouble damaging a modern 747 aircraft.
