"Thank you keith, The difference of 2 flights and not 1 is that IF I can get on the first plane and cope with it I know for a fact that getting off that plane then having to get on another one to go through the same fear will stop me in my tracks. I…"

"Hi Amanda, Thank you for the tips but I dont think words or pictures will even get me near to the airport as much as pills will. I have learnt a few tips though that people think might ease the anxiety. I have told the airline that I am a fearful…"

Hi I have had a fear of flying for 10yrs. I have avoided anything to do with holidays unless it was near by.I am 39yrs old and have flown twice in my life. The first time was when I was 15yrs old and was so excited as I was going on a family holiday to Greece and of course being a teenager I was excited and had no fear at the time. Then I met my husband when I was 18yrs old and after having 2 children we decided to go on our 1st family holiday to Spain. I was bragging to them how wonderful…See More

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.  

Captain Keith

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.
