Even though I knew a lot of these things before, reading this book made it all seem more real and I understood the science behind it more. It was nice to learn about all of the training and testing pilots go through. And all the failsafes and checks that are built in to planning a route, preparing the plane and flying. It’s nice to know how far within the limits of a plane we fly. Even having to fly back after seeing the news of the missing Malaysia flight, combined with a bit of turbulence and a bumpy landing, was OK. I could just repeat some of the things from this book as a mantra and be OK.

In conclusion, I would strongly recommend any nervous flyers read this book. I was still nervous, but nothing compared to how I usually am and I know that next time will be even better. This book gave me an in depth understanding of everything that ever scared me, and went way beyond what I imagined with regards to all the safety precautions. For every “but what if” you have, this book has an answer. I would also recommend booking a window seat as seeing outside really helped me to KNOW that the plane wasn’t falling out of the sky every time we slowed down a little.
