I’ve been scared of flying since the 737 MAX crashes that happened.
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!
