Yes I travel on planes from Atlanta to either Mexico,New York,or England and it has been safe all the time the only time you have to worrying about is taking off or landing, the plane tend to get shaking and that because they are ready to lift off or land ( from a guy who is afraid of heights)
Yes, it's very safe, & also a fun way to travel. When I first got on a plane, which was heading to Costa Rica, I was terrified, being that it was the first time myself. The beginning is like a roller coaster ride, then the flying itself is very smooth & very relaxing. The landing is a bit rough, but other then that, I think you will enjoy it.
Much safer than cars, trains, buses or even walking. Listen to the flight attendant as he/she explains the safety issues before you take off. Landing can be a bit bumpy but nothing to fear. Once you're up you won't even realize your moving. If you tell the flight attendant when you board how nervous you are they usually will be more attentive and check in with you during the flight. Of course all this is assuming it's not a little nine seater plane or a private plane. Have a great time. PS check with seatguru.com to make sure your in a good seat. Sitting near the wings will also be a bit noisier than other seats.
The worst part is going through security. But it's worth it. Once you take off, you won't even know you're on a plane. I feel safer there than in a car. Just face your fear. It will be fine. Just follow all directions. You will be fine. Don't wear tie shoes, you have to take them off going through security and it's a pain. Empty all pockets and take off belts. Walk through scanner after you place your items in a bin and have them go thru X-ray. Get your stuff back and go to your terminal. It will be fine! If you are old enough, have a drink to calm your nerves on the plane.
Flying is far safer than any other mode of transportation, especially auto travel. If you are nervous, consider taking an air sickness prevention pill before you take off--they take a while to kick in. Take something to read. Try to sit by the window so you can look out--it's amazing, people do look like ants but you get high enough that the ground looks like a patchwork quilt. It can get bumpy, so relax and go with the flow. You will not be the only person who is nervous.
First take some proper training from better training provider. Today many companies have Private jet charter so they can provide you better practical training. If you are perfectly trained then you will get no fear and easily drive the plane.
Airplanes are the safest transportation, they are fitted with either 2, 3, or 4 engines,, even if one engine went, it could still fly safely to its destination, they are fitted with emergency back-up equipment,etc.. And every 4 or 5 years they are replaced or thoughroughly checked for repairs and maintenance issues.
