My Dad has gone to live in New Zealand and lots of people expect me to go over to see him.. With a fear of flying that's going to be hard. They know I don't like flying but, they dint realise how bad it is. It's great to know that there are others like me here, any advice for me?

Thanks :)

Keiths book has helped me massively, and to deal with what you know and not what your think is going to happen. Its very natural for you to be anxious when in an environment you do not have full control over however flying the plane is the pilots job and has many many hours/years of regular training. Its easy for others to say you will be fine if they have no idea how you are feeling, which is where this site is great, Many people with the same fear to share experiences with. I trust what keith tells me.

Thanks Caroline...trust is what this site is about. Sometimes I must seem quite unfeeling but facts are facts and if they're not right they lead to  misunderstandings later on.

 

I say it as it is with the utmost respect for peoples feelings and beliefs. I know certain things don't happen BUT if someone feels a if it has then that's their reality so somehow we have to find the common ground. Other peoples support on this site is much more valuable than mine because you all understand where you're coming from.

 

How could I possibly know what that feels like. I love flying  I used to love being upside down in a plane soi how can I know?

But I'm here to keep it factually correct and to give as much support and encouragement as I can
