Airbus A350

Hello all,

I think this is a good news for all of us. New Airbus A350 had it's maiden flight. This is next big step into modern aviation. I look at the plane and it's so beautiful. Hope some day to take a flight with it. Somehow I feel I'd have less fear on board of this nice bird :)

So sad:( what can I do?

I am sitting here - crying. 

I (again) thourght I was okay. The hole day I have listened to the fear of flying cd, and it made me pretty calm, and I was thinking: I really can do this!

I am traveling sunday with my husbond and two daughters (the oldest 3 years the youngest 7 months). 

Now I am just thinking, that it is so sad, that I will bring them on a plane:'(

My oldest is very much looking forward to fly. And it almost makes me even more sad - Because, I don't know if… Continue

Another Flight

Flew Belfast to Leeds again last Friday and brought the good weather with me!  Two beautiful flights in clear sunny skies could see out all the way and it is great to be coming to recognise the landscape!  It is very true the more I fly the easier it becomes.  Am looking forward to a holiday on Italian coast Sept  flying Belfast to Nice.  This will be my longest flight since tackling my fears.  There is no doubt also Captain Keith's explanations of the flight management and various noises…

Upcoming flight - and so nervous:(

Sunday I am on my way to Spain, and

I am not feeling as well as I hoped. I have felt very

calm, and I actually have been looking forward to show myself, that I can do this! That I can enter an airport without crying. But,

now I am not that optimistic. 

I am not crying yet. But the tears are not far away, and I am so nervous for the flight - I have got this "special feeling" in my stomach, and I just want it to go away:( 



Please, tell me that I can do… Continue

Managed it

I think I managed to fly without many issues for a change!  Haven't posted for a while and I've done a good couple of trips since the last one.  The smaller ones were always Cork to manchester(UK), since I'd be visiting family.  Those turbo prop planes are hilariously terrifying on takeoff, especially when there's an irish pilot (I jest).  Either way, I think Aer Lingus are perpetually in a rush to get out of Cork airport, the last one I think left scorching tiremarks down the runway.  Most…

My trip to Netherlands

Hey to Everyone again. I just want to share my experience with you. One week ago i traveled alone to Nederland through Rome. Thats means  2 flights, 2 take offs 2 landings.  A couple of days before my flight i was very nervous. So nervous that i didn't want to go. The flight was really early (about 6.30 a.m.) so i didn't get much sleep. Those days i read again everything from the book, and saw on the web on official Schiphol website how many arrivals and departures took place during the day.…

Some things can be worried about, some really shouldn't be.

It's been almost 9 months since I last posted a blog. I've flown 6 times since then.

A few weeks ago was our May holiday and I went with some friends to Georgia. I was really excited about the holiday and did everything I could to not think about the two-hour flight there and back. Then a couple of days before leaving I cracked and went on an internet frenzy, checking weather forecasts, looking at details of Tbilisi airport (looking for nearby mountains), and trying to guess what kind…

success!

Just wanted to add a huge thanks to Keith for running his course, the no nonsense approach was invaluable to me! 

Just returned from Vietnam, long flight, stopover and internal flights, was nervous at Gatwick but not as bad as before, listened to the CDs on my iPod, followed take off relaxation techniques and kept repeating 'turbulence is not dangerous' in my head

Actually managed to sleep on the plane and eat the meals, jet lag and stress hugely reduced, didn't think about…
