Get the only on-line Fear of Flying Course at premium.flyingwithoutfear.com
I'm new to the site and was relieved when I saw how many members were signed up. As silly as it may sound, knowing I'm not the only one who has the 'fear' is soothing itself.
I haven't flown in 10 years. I used to fly often and without issue until I had a bad experience, turbulence of course, which changed my perspective on flying. I did fly after that experience but my fear got worse and worse to the point where my last time on a plane ended before it began; shortly after sitting down I got up and left the plane before it taxied to the runway.
My fear is not the plane or turbulence but more the fact that I don't have control I guess. My fear, as silly as it may sound, is that I might have a panic attack or something when I'm 35,000 feet in the air but wont be able to get out so to speak?
I tell myself I can get past this and that it's best to embrace the 'fear' if it does present itself but this time I wont be flying alone. I'll be flying with my wife and two young children and do NOT want them to see me nervous. Part of the concern is passing this along to them which I will not let happen.
Sounds familiar to anyone? Does anyone have tips that might help?
