Watch in HD – as I try to help my fearful friend overcome her fear.
Taking her flying was a humbling experience for me!
Parental Advisory: there is a fair bit of cursing – but it is damn funny!
She was WAY more afraid than I thought, and it was a real challenge to try to keep her calm.
Do you guys know what to do with a fearful passenger? Me neither apparently 😛
This was the first time I failed to impress a passenger with how awesome flying is…
(and it was a perfect night for flying, so it isn’t like I took her on a crappy day and scared her.)
What it comes down to is that I’ve never met a person who is deathly afraid of flying, but still willing to get in the plane – I think most people with her level of fear, simply wouldn’t even try it!
So I have to give her props for being so brave!
I tried every trick in the book to help her, but ultimately we didn’t make a lot of progress
– let me know if you guys have any ideas beyond what I tried!
This flight ended with a minor screw up on my part (but it didn’t make a difference to her over all bad experience 😛
If you haven’t seen it already please check out analysis video I did of the wake turbulence encounter we had on landing:
UPDATE – MJ is still working on her fear – she took a Flying Lesson!
Watch “Part 2” of her saga!
PLEASE also have a look at MJ’s channel, and tell her you’d like to see more of her flying with me!
(she has assured me that she is finally going to start making videos – as you can see, she’s great on camera!)
