I just wanted to share my experience on this fear of flying that I am starting to overcome. I was a frequent and happy flyer till 4 years ago. I was on a plane to Hamburg and it was a bit windy and I felt like if the plane was falling. Of course it wasn't as I know now, but that was enough to trigger my first pannic attack and since then it has been going worse. The fact that I live abroad and that I associate flying with leaving the family behind wasn't helping either. I didn't stop flying, but I found myself finding excuse to avoid/reduce the amount of travelling...So luckily I decided to start looking for help ,I read the book and started checking this website ( about 4 moths ago), and I think things are starting to change. Since then I have managed 3 flights without pannic attacks and in one of them I have even been through a storm! I still need to work a lot on my fear, but hopefully will improve. I never though looking outside of the widow could help so much!
