We fly out of and into Manchester. We have a flight coming up next weekend and I'm really starting to fret. Those of you that live in the North know what Manchester can be like. More often than not its raining and windy. One of our flights that we have had was an awful landing, there seems to be lots of turning on the approach to Manchester and we seemed to have a cross wind and the plane was bouncing about. I'm sure if I spoke to the pilot, he'd have said that it was OK. What I'd like to know is.......
1.when they come in to land and it is windy and they are turning is it safe.
2. is it hard work for the pilot to keep the plane level when windy on approach.
Your feelings are perfectly normal. I reckon that if everybody who had a fear of flying met everyone else who had a fear of flying everyone would cure each other. What ever you feel is normal, it's allowed, it's not a weakness it's the way you are....so what...now lets set about fixing it because it's easier than you think.
How about me with a fear of heights and I flew aeroplanes for a living? We've all got strengths as well.
This time next year you'll look back and say. Was that really me?
The answer is to face the fear...however awful that seems and then watch it slowly go away.
