Fear of Flying is one of the more common irrational fears. One reason is that there are many aspects to flying that are potentially psychologically disturbing. For example, being restricted in a small space for a long time without any possibility of changing your situation can be very uncomfortable for many people. In addition, there is a small but real danger to flying; you are high up in the air moving at great speeds. For many the most anxiety generating aspect of flying is that you are totally dependent on the judgment and actions of total strangers for your safety.
As you see, fear of flying can combine elements of other phobias and fears, such as fear of confining spaces and fear of heights. It also includes elements of fear of loss of control, and anxiety about some possible future catastrophic and even fatal, event.
Another influence that helps create fear of flying is the media. Through catastrophic depictions in movies and on television, individuals are vicariously experience the most frightening of flying situations. All of which cannot but reinforce and intensify all the aspects of flying that might lead one to develop such a fear of flying that they can no longer tolerate getting on a plane.
