Three Myths Involved In Fear of Flying
Three Myths That Contribute to a Fear of Flying
A video debunking common myths that feed the fear of flying: air pockets, fragile planes, and engine failure.
The narrator calmly explains why each of these myths is false – for example, air pockets don’t exist at all, and there is no way a plane can suddenly drop hundreds of feet. By revealing the truth and what drives each of these notions, people will be able to confront their fears for what they really are, and cope with anxiety more effectively.
The video ends with a advertisement for the Takeoff Today program to eliminate flying phobia, but even this short free video is enough to help comfort fears and rationalize the issues involved.
