First of all I would like to thank Keith who was very kind and helpful. So thank you Keith!

Well my name is Michele, and I too am quite scared of flying, so before anything else this will help me overcome my own fears!

I am doing this research project on fear of flying.. what makes people not want to fly? For me.. well many factors really... I've had pretty bad experiences in the past, bad turbulence, bad take offs, bad landings... well... you probably know what I am talking about. But to be completely honest I can't quite point out what makes me scared... and I was wondering if there is anyone else who feels the same.

I would be ever so grateful if anyone would be willing to help me with this research... all information will be treated in the most respectful and anonymous way, I guarantee.

So what is it that makes you not want to get on that plane?

Have you ever resorted to other methods of transportation? (I am originally from Brazil, so to see my family I have to fly a lot.... I wish I could take a cruise... but it takes so long.. so every time I fly.. I have my own little personal nightmare, as you much imagine... 13 hours in a plane is not that easy..)

With my research to the side, I personally believe that finding out that there are people just like me, will help me overcome my own fears.. and hopefully I can help other people too.... by sharing experiences. So maybe this research came in as a way to help me.

I am willing to talk to anyone about my fears... and if anyone wants to help... please feel free to contact me.

Thank you so much for taking your time to read this.... and I hope that we can all overcome our airphobias someday soon!
