Some travelers spend more time on airplanes than in cars. Their business travel may have them flying from one city to another weekly or even more often. The seasoned flyer is comfortable in an airplane, and stepping onto that plane is as much a part of their work week as getting in a car is for the rest of us. When it comes time for a yearly vacation, they enjoy the flight even more, as they know their destination is not work related, and with all of the miles they racked up during the year, they may just be flying their entire family to their vacation destination for free.
Then there are those who freeze at the thought of boarding a plane. The anxiety of being thousands of feet in the air is a reason for high levels of anxiety and fearfulness. Though air travel is exponentially safer than car travel (let’s face it there are a lot less airplanes in the sky, than cars on the streets), it is an experience that most people do not encounter on a regular basis. Pilots and stewardesses must love it, they are on airplanes more than the seasoned business traveler.
Flying can be an enjoyable and fascinating experience. If you try to relax, and the stewardesses will help you, you can get a glimpse of the world from a view that you do not get to see every day. If you are flying across the country, beautiful mountain ranges can be seen, and the sky is alive with the dancing clouds and blue sky. If you are flying over the ocean, its massive and majestic beauty is something to see. If you are apprehensive, you can always close your window and listen to music, watch a movie or have a meal. Maybe you need this flight to calm the jitters and you will see the amazing country from the air next time you fly. If you have anxiety about flying, try to relax. You will realize what an enjoyable experience it can be.
