Overview

Fear of flying is a perennial problem among both passengers and airline crews and recent terrorist attacks have heightened the levels of anxiety when boarding a plane. In this volume, one of Britain’s leading aviation psychologists, Robert Bor, examines passenger behaviour when faced with anxiety towards flying; the mental health of pilots; and the possible treatments for people suffering from fear of flying. The main aim of Anxiety at 35,000 Feet is to introduce basic concepts of clinical aviation psychology, with a primary emphasis on psychotherapeutic and clinical psychological issues.

For many people, the terrorist attacks have aroused previously palpable feelings of insecurity and unsafety that might have emerged in therapeutic work in other ways." — Robert Bor, from the Introduction
