Fear of Flying Book Reviews

In addition to online sources I've read a few great books about flying that gave me a new perspective on what's really going on. I carry them with me on flights so I can reference them in times of panic. Another bonus, none of them are very expensive. For those of us to buy everything we can on the subject that's a great thing. 

 

  Wings of Discovery, Fear of Flying Book

Wings of Discovery by Capt. Stacey Chance

The same pilot who has the free online course also wrote a book that is pretty helpful. It's a fictional story of someone faces his fear of flying and beats it. He wants to learn to fly ultralights and his experiences with it as he gets instruction from a former airline mechanic and private pilot. A good story with helpful tidbits throughout that explain maintenance schedules of commercial planes, the ins and outs of backup systems, and basic flying tips. Many questions that fearful flyers have are answered throughout this entertaining read. There are bits of humor. Overall I felt it really relaxed my mind whenever I thought about flying... I'm always so stressed out initially just thinking about flying but this book lets you have fun with it. Not a cold-hard-facts type of book. Very non technical, told in basic English.

  Flying without Fear, Fear of Flying Help Book

Flying Without Fear by Duane Brown

I love this book. For anyone looking for more technical information, more along the lines of the hardcore facts and figures, this book really helps. It really helps those of us who are white knuckle flyers. The books details the hardcore information in question/answer format so it's easy to find the specific information you want. Topics include: The Airline Industry, Pilots and Training, Personnel Other Than Pilots, Questions about Pilots, Aerodynamics, Flight Planning and the Flight Itself, Weather, Turbulence, Terrorism and Bombs, and Miscellaneous Questions. Did you know the death rate risk per flight is one in eleven million and that air travel is 20 times safer than by car? True. A truly wonderful book for those who have a fear of flying.
