My job is sending me to Amsterdam for training and I will extend another week in Germany to see my family and friends. I am really excited to see everybody, but this is my first long distance flight by myself (8 hours). I did a couple short distance flights by myself within the US - I can manage them, but my anxiety is always with me. But I am able to tell myself "It's only for a couple hours and then you're out here". I've been on many long distance flights with my…Continue
Hi there, i've got a bunch of flights coming up... a small atr air mauritius or air austral from mauritius to a neighbouring island , then later on four flights on Emirates via Dubai (each one 6 - 7 hours ish)... can feel the anxiety starting to build... can anyone assure me it's not possible to be trapped in a plane under water please - this is a big fear of mine, especially trying to get off with small kids in tow... i think claustrophobia is the main thing with me, as we flew 13 months…Continue
I'm Stephanie, a 30 year old teacher, and I have been dealing with a fear of flying for 18 years.
I developed this fear at the age of 12 after having flown over fifty times: I used to fly from LA to SF to visit my dad twice a month. After my father moved out of state flying began to terrify me. Many therapists have told me that this was a displaced fear....The flight from LA to Minnesota represented my father's increased physical distance from my life…Continue
So next week is the big family holiday that we have all been looking forward to for months. I'm being conscious this time to address my fear and plan for the flight before I get there to help alleviate the symptoms and ultimately get on the flight. It still feels like very early days to me....
I would really appreciate any tips, ideas or thoughts on how to get through the first part of the flight, including anything people do to help them before they board the plane and during take…Continue
This year I decided to face my fear of flying, mainly because we have a major family holiday planned and I've avoided flying for three years, my fear had got to the point that driving past the airport on the way to work got me shaky! I attended the ground course last Wednesday, and met Captain Keith. My fear was such that even talking about planes and flying was uncomfortable, so for me even attending the course was an acheivement!
I was happy to be the only person…Continue

I joined the forum as Im looking for support to overcome my irrational fear of flying but I really dont know where to start anymore. One of the main reasons I took the job im in today was because i got to travel, now its my worst nightmare. I cant get through it without diazepam, alcohol, both or a panic attack. Its a real change to where I was and is stopping me seeing the rest of the world. My problems started 9 years ago and have really grown since then, I…Continue
My name is Beck and I am 21 years old and live NSW Australia. I am really happy to have found this website and have already found lots of helpful info and stories/experiences of other people. It is easy to forget that you probably aren't the only one on the plane who is worried.
I have only flown 2 return trips in my life. Once from Sydney to Brisbane (about an hour and a half) and I was only very young then, I barely remember a thing.
Dear Captain Keith,
I would like to know if the Flying without fear book is available in Spanish (if so, where can I get it?), as it has helped me a lot (together with this website) and I would like my sister in law to read it as she is also a nervous flyer and I think it will help her too. Thanks a lot!!By the way I have to say my fear of flying has improved a lot. Still getting nervous but I even manage to read and sleep during the flight!!

first of all thanks for this website.
I could smell like something burnt for short period.
This was before landing on one of the flight and after takeoff for another flight.
Is it normal?What could be the reason?

It is a while since I took a look at the forum and things have changed so much, all for the better too! I wanted to come back and show my appreciation for Captain Keith and this website and resources and maybe give hope to those who feel they will never overcome their fear.
I first flew, aged 18, to Greece and thoroughly enjoyed the mild turbulence as a well-travelled friend assured me it was all part of the fun! Later I took a bumpy flight from Manchester to Dublin on a tiny…Continue
