To fly or not to fly.... - Page 2

post #31 of 39
Have never tried it, so I don't know if I would like it or not.

I don't like the feeling of the take off in a plane though, although strangely enough I love how it feels when you're landing. To me, it feels like a roller coaster ride.
Except I love the feeling of take-off even more than that of landing.

Has he shown you a spin yet?

I don't like flying. Just a 30 minute flight to Orlando scared me. I don't think I can fly for hours.

I'm not afraid to fly (though flying into Newark last year on 9/11 did make me a little think).

But I hate because I can get so ill. When I flew into Ireland a couple years ago (when you were having those awful winds), we did the required landing in Shannon, I thought I was going to not make it into Dublin. I was dry heaving. Now DH wants to go to Germany. I really don't know what I'm going to do.

I also don't sleep on the plane so trans-Atlantic flights wipe me out.

I don't like it and haven't been on a plane since 911, but I didn't fly much before then either. Last year we drove to DC then took the auto train to Orlando. And a couple of years before that we drove to the Outer Banks--very long ride. (AFter listening to my children on that trip, I said I'd rather fly and crash than endure this again, but I still haven't done it (fly, I mean, not crash)
My 13 year old son is actually going on his first flight in a couple of weeks. They have a class trip to DC. He seems pretty calm about it although he asked if he could pack a parachute in his carry on. I was pretty calm about it too until my DH got that movie about the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania with the terrorists.

I know its safer than driving, especially with the crazy drivers around here, but I just have a hard time with it.

I like the little Cessnas. They are fun. I got totake flying lessons las spring. Unfortunately it was only 2 hours. I love flying. So much to remember though. I dont know how people do it. Lol. I would love to get license to fly one day. As for big commercial planes, I get kinda worried. You are packed in with so many other people, and can't really see much. I hate the small windows.

I HATE flying.....I've flown 10+ times and it never gets any better. I'd much rather take a train (and enjoy the scenic route) or go by car. However if it's an extremly long train/car ride....flying is usually faster so i'd normally just suck it up and fly. I hate the layovers, the searches, and all of the other nonsense that goes along with flying though. I also just don't feel safe flying. I avoid it at all costs.

I'm not so crazy about it. My ears hurt when we just change elevations in the car. After the flights from our cruise last Feb, they hurt for weeks!
