Flying Without Fear – 101 Questions Answered

Gramma Trixie’s Review

Some people just do not like getting on a plane, and may do anything to avoid it. All well and good, but eventually many people get sick and tired of fear controlling their lives.

My old flying instructor told me that there is no such thing as a stupid question… only a stupid answer. Some of the questions in this book might seem strange, but then everybody has their own fears.

Richard and Paul answer all of these questions with respect and in no-nonsense, clear and easy to read style. They don’t avoid the hard questions either.

They also have “top tips from aviation experts” section that gives a detailed description of many aspects of the airline business that sometimes concern, written by aviation insiders who know what they are talking about.

“Flying Without Fear – 101 Questions Answered” is a great book for anyone with an aversion to flying, written by a couple of guys who are passionate about helping people overcome their fears. There’s no need to be “grounded” anymore!


Some Words from Junior Flyer’s

Doctor Don McGloven-Goforrit

Here at Junior Flyer we present some info that might be of interest to people who are a little nervous about flying, such as my aviation medicine Fear of Flying sequence, but at the end of the day you are better getting advice and help from real people who really know their stuff.

Paul and Steve, the authors of this book, are two such people who have many years experience presenting this information in ways it can be understood and used by real human-beans.

I heartily recommend this book… it may be just the medicine you need to slay the “dragon” you have created out of thin air!
