Fear of Flying

Does the thought of flying in a plane fill you with dread? You're not alone. Fear of flying is thought to affect up to one in ten people.

Why am I afraid of flying?

You might have seen news reports of plane crashes, emergency landings or other flying related incidents on TV. Perhaps you’ve heard stories from friends, or maybe you’ve been on a plane before and something happened which made you anxious or fearful.

Planes are incredibly advanced pieces of technology, so it’s no wonder that many of the background sounds that occur as part of a normal flight can seem a bit bewildering. Your subconscious mind responds to these feelings of uncertainty by making you anxious or fearful, because it’s trying to protect you from what it thinks might be a danger. Fear is a response which we learn through experience and the good news is that it can be unlearned.
