Sometimes a fear of flying can be aggravated by the type of plane that you fly in. Most common is a fear of flying in an aircraft that has propellers. The aircraft engine shown here is a combination of a jet engine…and a propeller. It has the reliability of a jet and the efficiency of propellers. This is an excellent combination for short trips and small airports.
The noise is quite different during parts of the flight and it’s likely that you’ll hear a ‘throbbing sound’ as the engine speeds are different. If you have a fear of flying use this knowledge to reduce your anxiety.
