  1. Thank you so much for the tips! My aunt is terrified of flying and heights in general! This is really helpful!

      Thanks! I’m glad you found it helpful. : )

  2. This is so useful! I will try those tricks next time, cuz I have really strong fear, and nothing was helping me so far. Neither music, focusing on other things, or even being with loved ones.. Always got panic attacks , don’t know why. But I will overcome it I am sure!

      Give the breathing techniques a try. It really helped me.

  3. Great list. I have just recently started to experience severe anxiety when flying. Deep breathing and having someone with me makes all the difference!

      Yes breathing techniques and the buddy system definitely help!

  4. Funny to read this post. My situation is a little bit different. I don’t have a fear of flying but my case is, I hate when the airplane takes off, get to a certain height then do that slight drop. Each time it feels like my heart is coming out of my throat. However, having my husband next to me is a great help. He knows how much I hate it, so he always extends his hands for support. Your tips are great. Even for me who who battles with my little discomfort.

  5. I have actually developed more fear over the years. So odd. I don’t fly often anymore, which does not help to overcome it either. I LOVE the breathing technique you mentioned here also. I will keep that in mind!

  6. Loved this post! My mother fears flying and I can’t wait to share this with her! Great insight!

  7. I was 28 when I flew for the first and I’m glad I wasn’t alone because I was terrified! My kids were 8 and 10 when they flew for the first time.They are in their 20s now and don’t even think about it . I definitely agree with not going alone . Great tips!

  8. Thank you so much for this! I’m taking notes like mad, my daughter has never flown before and she has extreme anxiety about it. I’m not sure yet when we’ll take that first flight with her, but when it comes, it’s going to be a doozy.

  9. Deep breathing and chewing gum usually helps me as I really hate flying. Your tips are great!
