Overview

If you have a fear of flying, for any reason, you are probably getting a lot of flack for it.

Fear of flying and in-flight problems such as popping ears and motion sickness can prevent you from -

--Attending important business meetings and convention

--Attending job interviews

--Taking exotic holidays in far off places

--Going somewhere warm for the winter

--Getting places as quickly as you need to (your rival taking the plane is going to get to where you need to go ten times more quickly then you)

--Seeing beloved family members who may live far away

--Making it to funerals, weddings and other rites of passage or celebrations

--Seeing the world and enjoying new experiences in general


In essence, refusing to get on a plane limits your options and opportunities and causes others to see you as old-fashioned, insecure and neurotic.

If you do fear flying, you are certainly not alone in this world. There are millions of people who just can't handle the thought of being encased in a capsule of metal that rockets hundreds of miles up in the air through the sky.

Anxiety is a huge problem for many people who fly despite the fact that statistics compiled by the US Department of Transport suggest that flying is 29 times safer than travelling in an automobile.

Then there are people who just can't handle flying physically. Their balance is thrown off and they become dizzy and nauseous. These individuals are prone to similar problems on the ground but their focus on the plane trip does not have them realize that their anxiety is generalized in nature.

People who suffer from fear of flying often suffer symptoms on two levels.

Physically those who fear flying may experience -

--Excessive sweating

--Dizziness

--Have a dry mouth

--Becoming pale

--Having a flushed face

--Feeling tingly

--Having stomach cramps or pain

--Having diarrhea

--Feeling extreme muscle tension

--Shaking or having tremors

--Feeling short of breath or start hyperventilating

--Experiencing blurry vision

--Experiencing rapid heart beat

These are all the standard physical symptoms of aviaphobia.

Psychologically a fear of flying expresses itself through --

--An inability to stop talking about the fear of flying

--Crying

--Terror

--Feeling trapped

--Poor perception

--Negative expectations

--Thoughts racing out of control

--Persistent thoughts of death

--Feelings of guilt as if they deserve to die

--A feeling that one may die on the spot if not released from the situation

Obviously you can see how overwhelming it could be to suffer from all of these symptoms at the same time.

If you have a problem getting on a plane, this manual is going to show you how to overcome that fear. If motion or travel sickness is a malady that you are susceptible to, you are going to learn how to overcome that difficulty too.

    Avoid the last chapter...

    After all is said to try and calm the reader's nerves and offer suggestions targeted to end the suffering of fear of flying, the author gives a detailed explanation of the horrors of deep vein thrombosis! Everyone who flies is at risk, the author explains. Moving during the flight diminishes this risk. Ok. I'm not suggesting that the author not include some information about this condition, but there is entirely too much included. After I read about it, now I have fear of getting dvt while flying. So much for staying calm!
