Welcome aboard.
My fear of flying focused on being shut in . However, Keith told me that a pilot is able to open his window in the cockpit.Just knowing that this is possible has had a huge impact on my attitude to flying , coupled with doing breathing exercises for relaxation .

best wishes, Elizabeth.

Hi Nicoli

Welcome aboard! Thanks for joining us and I hope this network will help you...and don't forget you can help others too.
