What is Fear of Flying?

When it comes to air travel, some people experience a level of anxiety that can make the thought of getting on a plane downright terrifying.

This fear can be so severe that it leads to avoidance of flying altogether. If you’re someone who struggles with a fear of flying, you may feel like you’re all alone in your experience.

But the truth is, this is a very common problem. In fact, studies have shown that up to 25% of people avoid flying because of their anxiety.

Common Causes of Fear of Flying

The fear of flying is one of the most common phobias, affecting an estimated 6.5% of the population. There are many different factors that can contribute to this fear, including a previous bad experience, a fear of heights, or simply a lack of exposure to flying.

  • One of the most common causes of fear of flying is a previous bad experience. This could be anything from a turbulence-filled flight to an emergency landing. If you’ve had a bad experience on a plane before, it’s only natural to be hesitant about getting back on one.
  • Another common cause of fear of flying is a fear of heights. This is often compounded by the fact that you feel like you have no control when you’re up in the air. If you’re afraid of heights, it can be helpful to remember that planes are designed to withstand a lot of turbulence and even severe weather conditions.
  • Finally, another common cause of fear of flying is simply a lack of exposure to it. If you’ve never been on a plane before, or if you haven’t flown in many years, it’s understandable that you would be nervous about the idea.

The Impact of Being Afraid to Fly

The majority of people who have a fear of flying do not have a true fear of the airplane itself. Rather, their fear is usually related to a specific event that occurred during a flight, such as turbulence, landing, take-off, or being in close quarters with other passengers. For some people, their fear may be more general, such as a fear of heights or enclosed spaces. No matter the source of your fear, it can have a significant impact on your life.


If you have a fear of flying, you may avoid traveling altogether. This can limit your ability to see family and friends who live far away, take holidays, or advance in your career. You may also miss out on experiences and opportunities that would be otherwise available to you. Fear of flying can also cause anxiety and stress in the lead-up to travel. This can make packing and preparing for trips more difficult than necessary.

There are many ways to address a fear of flying. Some people choose to do so on their own, while others seek professional help. Fast Track Hypnosisy is an ideal method that has been shown to be effective in treating fear of flying and other phobias. This unique type of therapy uses special relaxation techniques and positive affirmations to help change the way you think about flying. It can also help you manage any anxiety or stress you may feel in relation to travel.

Plane Afraid! Physical and Emotional Symptoms of Fear.

While the thought of getting on a plane may fill you with dread, it’s important to remember that flying is actually one of the safest modes of transportation. In fact, you’re more likely to be injured in a car accident on the way to the airport than in a plane incident. But even knowing this doesn’t always ease the anxiety that comes with flying.

If you’re someone who experiences fear or anxiety when flying, you may notice physical and emotional symptoms such as:

  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • dizziness
  • Panic attacks
  • Dry mouth
  • Trouble sleeping

Flying Anxiety- Is This You?

There are many different types of anxiety that can be experienced when flying. Some people may feel anxious about the take-off or landing, while others may feel anxious about being in an enclosed space. Some people may even experience anxiety about flying in general.

Overcoming Your Fear of Flying

Overcoming your fear of flying can open up a world of travel and adventure that was once closed off to you. It can also reduce the stress and anxiety that often accompanies air travel, allowing you to enjoy the experience and arrive at your destination feeling refreshed and ready to explore.

  1. You’ll be able to travel more easily and conveniently.

The Life-Changing Effects of Fast Track Hypnosis

“For 46 years on never travelling abroad with a fear of flying, getting on a boat, I finally decided it was time to do something about it.

I contacted Alan and booked my appointment, I honestly didn’t think it was going to work as my fear was too huge.

So I got the Hypnosis and didn’t feel a change in myself until I had the urge to go to the travel agents and book our holiday that I always talked of.

We went to Paris for a few days and on the plane I hadn’t a care in the world. The fear was completely gone and I was in a comfortable relaxed state the entire flight. I couldn’t believe I was finally in Paris.

Since then we have went to Florida with the family , and even bumpy landings and delayed sitting on the plane before take off.

People were stressing and worried and I was so laid back and relaxed!

I’m glad to say my fear has gone and I’m planning to start seeing the world (after another return trip to Florida)

Thank you so much Alan it’s thanks to you this is possible :)…..Jackie……. “
