Hi everyone!

This is my first blog.

I am sooooo glad to have found this website. My husband bought me the "Flying without Fear" book and I have devoured it!!!!

My "in-laws" live in Mallorca (I live in Scotland). My mother and father in law died a couple of years ago and I am ashamed to say I wouldn't allow my son (who is now 12) to fly to see them. They died a couple of years ago and I now realise he missed out on seeing them because of MY fears. Since he is now old enough to decide for himself, he and my husband have been on holidays/flights without me. I have now "committed" to a family holiday next year. Already I am having nightmares and anxietiy attacks. I am tyring to equate "flight" with allowing my son to see his aunt and cousins but so far to no avail.

I have exchanged emails with Captain Keith and he has very kindly advised that "one step at a time" is the key.

I know he is right. I am am so glad to have found you all as everyone else just rolls their eyes when I say I am terrified of fllying.

Your comments would be more than welcome!!

Hiya, dont be ashamed of your fear.Easy for me to say i know....I was terrified of flying up untill yesterday. Yesterday i went on one of Captain Keith's courses and it has literally turned me round.I have not flown for over 30 years and coulnt even think about it without having a panic attack...I am going to do a blog about my day.But if you can please try and come to one of the courses.even if i have a wobble on the day of my flight i will have a strategy in place to deal with it. Capt keith did say that it has taken years to get the fear, so it may take a while to not have it.

Fear of Flying

Hi Alexa

Somehow we've got to persuade you to come down to one of our courses!!

England is a great place to visit (!) and there's a stack of stuff to see down here so you could make it a long and fruitfull weekend.

And there's enough time to plan it isn't there?
