Generally speaking of all the people who are anxious about flying most people fall into one of two main groups. They are monitors and blunters. The first group want to find out about things…and that’s probably you, because you’re visiting this site and the other group  who, not unreasonably just want to fly and know nothing at all about the hows and whys of what’s happening …they just want to do it with the minimum fuss as they see it.

It’s not essential to know exactly what has caused your fear of flying, but it will help if you start to organise your thoughts about how you feel about flying.

One of the ways of organising your thoughts is to write them down, so we have prepared this list of questions which should help you to get started. it won’t give you an answer but it will get you thinking about the things that you probably haven’t wanted to think about previously.

To help you get the maximum benefit, answer these questions as honestly as you can because they will help you to focus.
