Perhaps it's because this has been in my mind lately, but I've noticed a thread and some posts lately on this topic. It's nice to know I am not alone.
Having said that... What can be done to conquer this problem? I am going to glacier national park this summer for business and for a trip for myself... And I need to fly, but I am freaked out by the prospect. I know I am letting this get in the way of the life I want to live because I love traveling... I just hate the flying part. My dad has been taking flying lessons (he used to be an air force pilot too) and wants to take me up with him when he gets the liscense... But I'm freaked out to go up... And that's a glider plane! Nothing bad can happen in a glider plane!
For me, I have major issues with the takeoff... I hate the rollar coaster sensation most of all. I am just fine once the plane has levelled off and is flying normal. I was fine with the landing until my dad told me that that's the most dangerous part.
I used to love flying when I was a kid and teenager. Considering how many places I want to go to, it would be a bummer to let myself down because of this fear.
Sooo, how can I fix this? Are you afraid of flying too? What did you do to stop being afraid (if you had this problem), etc.
