Shit scared of flying


Recommended Posts

Is it only me or does anyone else get scared on a big plane and small internal flights but wont blink an eye about Paramotoring any where

I love the feeling looking out with nothing infront of you.

My mates cant work me out i think its about being in control yourself!

I suppose doing all your own safety checks it puts your own mind at rest as your not relying on anyone else.

Does anyone else feel the same?

I am always apprehensive of flying when going on holiday unless the pilot says its going to be a smooth flight. Also turned down a cheap balloon flight one time. I think its the panic that might bite when you realise you cant get off - even if its not actually unpleasent.

Totally shit out of a parachute jump in Oz and held the kids while the wife done it! One of my biggest regrets i would definetly do it now shame though the chance has gone and she still tunes me about it!

Do you fly other flying craft then Alan?

What do you prefer?

I don't own any other flying machine but I have been in a flexwing a few times and a 3 axis microlight once, would recommend anyone with a penchant for flight to try them.

The feeling of the 'magic chair' (to quote Whitters) of a paramotor is unbeatable, your just so in tune with the air, with nothing to impede the view :D

Norman - I don't think we want to know that really :lol:

Cheers,

Alan
