All done :)

My flight to Lapland (and back) is all done and I was actually much better than the last time 13 years ago.Rescue Remedy, focused breathing, positive thinking and Captain Keith's words of advice in my head (and sometimes out loud) meant I only had a few anxiety tears on take off - but they were soon gone.  I was OK with the noises, the tilting for turns and the changes in engine noise because I knew what they all were.  Cpt Keith's advice that flying is just another part of their working day…See More

"Every little helps indeed It's also called  the 'aggregation of marginal gains'. It's what the British cycling team did in the last Olympics. They used lots of little improvements to get one big one. Keith."

No backing out now !

Posted on December 2, 2013 at 5:34pm 0 Comments

Have told the kids we are going to Lapland now so no changing my mind about that flight now.

Nine days to go and OK at the moment but comes and goes in waves - using elastic band method & reciting Captain Keith's advice on regular (if not hourly) intervals !

So four weeks and counting....

Am beyond excited about my forthcoming trip......going to LAPLAND to do the Santa and Husky think and really hoping to see the Northern Lights!

Have wanted to do this trip since I was about 20 and was either too poor or too terrified to go (usually both) however here I am faced with absolute dream come true of more snow than you can shake a stick…

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakwale200@gmail.com) ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
Mrs Stella.

Hi ... thank you for joining us on the internet’s biggest social network for fearful flyers, where you’ll find all the support, help and encouragement you need to manage your fear of flying.

The idea of the network is to encourage you to share your experiences and feelings about flying, but if you prefer to just read other people’s stories then that’s fine too. Please add whatever comments you want to any articles and posts here. The best help comes from people who share a fear of flying.

The success of the network depends upon each  member helping and supporting other people from their own experiences.

I’m here to help you with  the facts about flying and help you to find strategies and techniques to deal with your fear.

So please don’t hesitate to ask me anything you need to know about. I will always give you honest answers, and I hope that I will be able to explain the complexities of flying in a way that is accurate, helpful and interesting to you.

Please post your stories, videos and pictures to encourage others to share your successes and to encourage them when they need support.

By the way…we don’t do the hearty slap on the back stuff, nor tree hugging or water trickling, and we don’t do the ‘Look how easy it is to fly a plane’ angle. We’ll  help you by explaining the truth as simply and helpfully as we can. There are no quick fixes, no magic cures, no miracles…just commitment to overcoming your fear

You can call me any time although of course I can’t guarantee to be at the end of the ‘phone all the time. + 44 01420 588 628

And if you ever need to call me from the airport …feel free to do so. If I can help you, I will.

All we ask in return is that you tell other people about us.  

Here are some useful links to the main website.

Ps May I encourage you to face your fear as soon as possible? You may feel that it’s better to leave it until you are nearer to taking your flight, but the reality is that the sooner you face your fear, the better.
