    I have a healthy fear of flying based on over 5000 hours of flight time as a Navy aviator. Things can go wrong; I've seen them go wrong. I've had engines quit on me and brakes burst into flames on landing.

    So it's always smart to have that healthy fear and pay attention to safety where's the EXIT, like keeping the seat belt on at all times, like where again did they say the flotation gear is located.

    Many millions in this world are afraid to fly.

    Many have no need to fly in order to travel and do what they want to do.

    The frequent travellers that answer on this forum regularly obviously travel more than most.Some work for Airlines and fly many times per month.Some fly regularly as part of their job.

    I have been on planes quite a lot in my life, but when I was a child I was deathly afraid of planes. I had to be put on medication my first couple times on a plane. I was always okay until they played the dreaded "safety video". Now, I am not scared because I've been on planes so many times. I still am not a huge fan of flying, though.

    I honestly don't understand how people can logically fear flying.

    Yes, there have been plane crashes but there are far more people dying in car crashes yet people afraid of flying still drive.

    On average, 3,000 people PER day die in car accidents worldwide.

    On average, 1.2 people PER day die in plane crashes worldwide.

    Over one million people a year die in car accidents.

    About 500 to 600 people a year die in plane crashes.

    But what do i care. i love to fly so less people on the plane is better

    No. But I have a healthy fear of being in a car. 30,000 people die every year in the US in car accidents. 0 die in large commercial planes.
