Introduction For many, the thought of soaring through the sky in an airplane is an exhilarating experience filled with anticipation and excitement. However, for others, the mere mention of air travel can trigger intense feelings of dread and panic. This is known as the fear of flying, also referred to as aerophobia or flying phobia.
Aviophobia is the intense fear of flying that can significantly interfere with a person’s ability to travel by air. This condition can stem from various factors, including past traumatic experiences, fear of heights, or loss of control. Understanding and addressing aviophobia is crucial for those who wish to overcome this fear and travel comfortably.
