Fear of flying is a very common fear, but also a very curable condition. Fear of flying can be caused by a bad experience the person has had on a previous flight, such as severe turbulence in flight or perhaps unusual operations such as engine failure or emergency landing. You can consider the course of reducing anxiety of flying and you can enjoy fly travelling.
So we need to remember that fear is a normal and healthy response to something that threatens us. It has been around since the days of cavemen. It's a survival mechanism that protects us and keeps us alive. Fear is a good thing.

When cavemen roam the ground, fear, and even fear, is normal and very helpful. Right now, and especially during the flight, there is rarely anything you can legally fear or feel threatened with. Today most of the world is a very safe place, and flying a plane is one of the safest places. Unfortunately, our minds still cling to the ancient "survival of fears" that mankind had since its human beginnings.
Great, how do you overcome the fear of flying? The first time you feel anxious during a flight, you need to ask yourself whether you are afraid of what is or might happen. What most people find is that what really worries them on the plane may not be a reality, just the thoughts and feelings that you have generated in your head. Here you have to sit mentally, come back to reality and realize that you are completely safe on the plane.
If your anxiety is getting worse and you completely avoid flying, or if you feel scared for weeks before the flight or have a panic attack during the flight, it is advisable to learn to control your fear response during the flight. It's actually easier than you think with the right approach.
