Thank you for the welcome. I ait's am just from London on a BA flight. I had to go on the plane for work, so had no choice but to face up to it. The last flight I was on I couldn't stop crying, my muscles started to spasm with tension and I just swore I wouldn't pit myself through it again.
I'm pleased to say that on today's flight I kept the videos I had watched and facts re: turbulence in my mind but then when on the decent the plane started moving a lot, dipping, shaking etc going though clouds and swaying as approaching the runwAy I just felt like I couldn't cope!
What causes turbulence? I know now that it'snot dangerous and I told myself thAt throughout the whole flight! But by the plane being moved can it cause a problem?
Thank u for your site so far, I havr highly recommended it already and your book arrived this morning!
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.
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.
