My Fear Of Travelling By Air

Big Fear Of Travelling By air

This post is about my Fear of Travelling by Air, yes, in an airplane. If you have this worry or fear, you are not alone.

I myself do not take pleasure in this experience and it was not till I was eighteen years of age that I  got the guts to travel by air. I hope you like my adventure.

Personally, I like to be in control of whatever I do. I keep away from any threat and never been one for things like roller-coasters.

I do not need that kinda thrill to rock my boat. Some do, but not me.

The idea of traveling by air, for that reason, did not thrill me, I need to confess, it terrified the living daylights out of me.

When I drive my car, I have a component of control, if the airplane crashes for whatever reasons, my life could be over. I am not the pilot, I am not part of the maintenance team and I do not know its history.

Like the majority of people, I checked out that flying is without a doubt the safest kind of travel. You know what? I don’t really care, I still would rather drive.

There has actually been a TV series called Lost. In my opinion, it was an excellent program and I have seen every episode. It sure didn’t help my fear of flying.

Due to the appeal of Lost, I have seen a lot of news articles with individuals explaining how they made it through an aircraft crash. I was overwhelmed by their stories, just thinking of the worry and horror they have been through.

Anyway, In my last air-plane adventure, I recalled that the liftoff and landing are the worst elements of the entire experience for me, and this is where I am at my most terrifying level.

We were moving down the runway, collecting speed, I grasped the armrest securely, hoping that would assist/help, and then all of a sudden the aircraft took to the air. The individual in the seat beside me then asked if he might have his hand back.

Seems that I was not applying the jaws of death grip to the armrest, I actually was squeezing the blood out his hand. I quickly said sorry and continued to be brave, or at least I pretended well. I don’t think I will be doing that anytime soon.
