"Hi I second Jim's comment. Really helps. Try it in your car with an inch of water beforehand, the car will spill. The flight is barely noticeable. What are your fears of?"

"Hi Carly, I think prop planes seem noisier because the engines and props are higher up ,A Boeing 737s engines are underneath the wing so are not so noticeable . I have just flown with Nok air in Thailand and the plane was the same make as a…"

why do prop planes seem scarier?

I dont have any holidays this year so to keep myself familiar with flying I am flying an hour next week to visit parents.  Silly but I am nervous again despite my yearly short and long hauls.I think it's because it might be on a small propellar Flybe rather than jet.  I know these smaller planes are still jet powered but they seem noisy, fly lower and more affected by turbulence (in my head).Any facts to help me recognise they are the same? thanks 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.  

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.
