Caring for a series of small details before flying can reduce the fear of catching a plane, what psychologists recommend to prepare the case well in advance and take care of little things like food and clothes before boarding the plane.
"Relax, prepare for the luggage in advance, arrive at the airport in good time, wear comfortable clothes and flat shoes, can help reduce this fear," he explained, told Europa Press, the psychologist, pilot and vice president of the Association Spanish of Aviation Psychology, Salvador Torres.
Torres also said that "food before flying is very important because the stress of fear of flying consume glucose, so it is recommended to take carbs and not drinking coffee or alcohol and smoke less."
Furthermore, she added that another of the most common advice is to "request an aisle seat because it generates less claustrophobic than sitting in the middle of three seats."
Despite these general guidelines, the expert states that "no one fear to everyone, not even the refusal to fly the same for everyone."
In that sense, you can not deduct or categorizing the causes of these fears, but "in the background of most people with fear of flying is a deep ignorance of the air environment, I can not imagine that a device floating in the sky But there are also more sensitive than people had any negative experience with the aircraft in his family. "
LOSE THE FEAR OF FLYING.
Torres, who has participated in different courses for people who are willing to lose their fear of flying, says he is "satisfied" with the results achieved.
In relation to this, said that about 80% of the participants get to go up on a plane without this fear but acknowledges that "fear is lost but is still an uneasiness as that may cause any other means of transportation."
The psychologist explained that these courses, after an interaction between participants explaining how they feel fear of flying and the reason of that fear, experts will provide a psychological explanation of what is fear, phobias, and so on.
Moreover, according to Torres, "is to convey to everyone that the plane is the safest means of transport, so that the courses include a technical explanation of the operation of aircraft and the source of the noises and movements aircraft during the flight, which are responsible for many of the fears of those affected. "
On the other hand, "is also often put these people in the cockpit of an airplane or a flight simulator to sit in the driver's seat and fly the same plane then they will fly."
