Your chances of dying in an airplane is 1 in 5,000,000 - extremely, extremely unlikely.

The truth is anxiety makes you fear things that are not actually dangerous, it clouds your common sense. Here are some tips for your next flight:

  • Sit near the isle, not the window.
  • Visit the cockpit and greet the pilot, you’ll feel comfortable for the rest of the flight.
  • Put on some headphones and watch a movie from the start.
  • Anticipate your anxiety, prepare to argue with your fear, try to tell it that it makes no sense.

You will be safe, I promise. Enjoy your flight! :airplane:
