Fear of Flying


What is a Fear of Flying?

Fear of flying is a fear of being on a vehicle that travels through the air. The condition is often referred to as Aviophobia.

Causes of this phobia, like many, vary from a preexisting disorder such as claustrophobia and anxiety to a traumatic experience such as turbulence on a previous flight or a negative experience at the airport. Common signs include shaking, sweating, panic and disorientation.
