Flying Again

Hello All,Just to say, firstly, that if one thinks about it, Flying is not about being a safer form of transport, but is Safe!!My first flights were in the old BEA Trident period, compared to todays planes these were rickety but safe non the less.The power now in those engines of today you can feel the difference, those of us that remember the old tridents.  Nice to look back on them now.My next flight in November is to Faro by my favourite airline, British Airways, we will be in club class as we feel that as there is more room, one can relax more, and going at this time of the year the cost isn't that much more.Though, when we go to Australia in December, we will be going club class on all our flights, the length of the journey for one thing convinces us it will be more relaxing etc.But the above isn't about boasting, it is about showing to all nervous flyers, myself included, that through sites like this and, when I did the fear of flying course back in 1991, these things work!! …See More

"Hi Beckey There's no greater chance of crashing on a long haul flight than any other. You should have a plan for dividing the flight into chunks and deal with each bit at a time. For example spend the first hour reading, the second two hours…"

First long haul

Hi captain Keith. (Hi everyone!) I am a nervous flyer who has successfully been on two holidays thanks to your books, website & forum! However I take my first ever long haul flight on Saturday and the nerves are kicking in. I'm terrified of crashing!! I wondered if you could just give me some words of encouragement. It helps to have that connection!! Thank you. Beckey xxPs I'm going to flying fear began in 2001...See More

Flying progress

Hi everyone, it's so nice to see the forum back again. Although I haven't posted for a while I often checked in for your stories of success and bravery which have always been very inspiring whilst I worked through my own fears. I've gone from someone who wouldn't fly, absolutely no way, completely terrified, sobbing hysterically to Keith on the telephone when I had to go to Leipzig for work (thanks again Keith!), to someone who has visited Iceland, Thailand, Copenhagen, India and Los Angeles all in the last three years. I've travelled in various emotional states over the years, from gripped with fear, to mild discomfort, to sometimes not being bothered at all, and it does vary but it does get better, I can absolutely promise you that.There's no one-size-fits-all cure to our fears and getting to know what does help you takes time and practice, like anything else worthwhile in life. The ability to travel and see the world is an absolute privilege and that's what gives me the…See More

Come on everyone...

Lets get this forum back rolling...Hi Keith, remember me?...I was there back in the day when the site first started with about 30 regulars lol... great that the forum has been reinstated..Self help is one of the best forms of help, learning to overcome your own fears as well as managing/understanding the mechanics of fear along with watching the great watching videos, clips, reading books and the many courses available on here. Its certainly better than sinking far to many large ones in the airport bar...dont do it!!, they might not let you on the plane (great for the ones who really dont want to fly!!...but what a waste of money and a let down to others in your group!) and two, Ive done it, and believe me the fear factor is increased a hundred fold the first time the plane 'wobbles' a little...because you will be aware that you dont have control over yourself.After 8 years of making lame excuses about not wanting to fly I finally gave in and decided to join my wife on our 25th…See More
