When I first flew, I never had a problem and loved it. Gradually after many flights I became more and more uncontrollably anxious during flights despite not having any genuinely bad experiences on board - instead I convinced myself that the normal behaviour of the aircraft - banking, turbulence, noises, levelling out etc was cause for me to get very stressed and let my imagination run riot. One day I could take no more, and re-arranged travel plans for 2 years to avoid getting on an aircraft.
With encouragement from my girlfriend, I found this book and bought it as preparation for a full fear of flying course. I never needed it, the book did the trick.
You may find this book doesn't completely cure you, but I guarantee you will find it helps a lot, and is worth many times more than the cost of the book.
I found that reading it at least 3 times before flying again really helped enormously, as I was able to instantly recall the real facts about all the things that had worried me before, rather than guessing and worrying about what it might be - things like the sensations, the noises and the behaviour of the aircraft could all be explained logically to myself from what I had read in the book. Also it is really important to take the book on the plane and have it on your lap before you take off, so you can instantly refer to it, and re-read relevant sections as you are experiencing the flight. This helps so much. If you are embarrassed about it, as I was, simply have it face down and open it from the back cover instead, or hold it inside another book or magazine.Read more ›
I announced to my husband earlier this year that I was going to conquer my fear of flying, before our planned trip to Corfu in August. He supportively said "Oh yeah! How are you going to do that then?!"
For me the gauntlet had been thrown down.
I chose 'Flying without Fear' because I couldn't really justify £600 for the weekend course at Heathrow, that I would have loved ("You could get a couple of flights to Italy for that much", my husband quipped!).
This year having read Captain Godfrey's wonderful book, I flew to Corfu without the help of any kind of drug. I was fine! I found myself explaining all about flaps and aerodynamics to my children. A great experience for us all, as I have never sat with them on a plane. Previously I had been fearful of transmitting my phobia to them.
On our return flight, it was too hot to fly straight home to Bournemouth. We had to make an unscheduled stop in Italy to refuel. That meant two take-offs and two landings. Before 'the book' this would have killed me, but I had no problem.
Since returning, about a month ago, I have booked flights for the whole family to go to Florida, next June. This is something I could never have done before, not a nine hour flight!
I would seriously recommend this book to anyone with a true terror of flying, as I had, though my fearless husband read it because it is a 'good read'. Captain Godfrey has changed my life.
