I'm not afraid of flying, it's not something that has ever bothered me and I am aware that statistics show it is safer to fly than to drive..... BUT this recent spate of disasters has made me pause and wonder!
As a pilot and therapist who works with anxious fliers, the recent events have had an impact. It is interesting that people react emotionally to a crash, even if it involves an airline they never fly. That's not too smart. If the recent crashes have had an effect, rethink it. Aviation has grown far too rapidly in Asia, too rapidly for safety fundamentals to have been put effectively in place.
