I will! Because I’ve spent a lot of time in the air and I’m very much alive and well. 🙂 It’s okay to be scared of things that you don’t fully understand, but airplanes are as safe as they are exciting and cool. I sometimes wish they were a little less safe so I didn’t have to deal with constant maintenance and worrying about NASA reports, but that’s just how aviation goes.

If you want to get over a fear of flying, I recommend checking out programs like SOAR— or even trying out a discovery flight at your local airport! Not… going into random pilots’ Tumblr inboxes to be unkind. The world is really beautiful from above.
