Fear of flying is very common. Many people experience fear during a flight and often their anxiety starts long before boarding the airplane, sometimes days or even weeks in advance. Estimates of the percentage of people who suffer from fear of flying vary between 10% and 25%. Some estimates even go as high as 40%. Flying anxiety may be so intense that people avoid flying altogether. In other cases, people can get themselves to board an airplane but each flight is an ordeal and a very stressful experience for them. ZeroPhobia – Fear of Flying is a solution developed for everyone who suffers from flying anxiety to a smaller or larger degree.
