Turbulence scares me to death…
Weather - Air Turbulence
Thursday, 09 December 2010 17:32

Hi Capt Lim,

Let me introduce myself. My name is Daryanto...and frankly, I'm afraid to fly on an airplane. My job requires me to go on an airplane because I'm a soldier in Indonesia...and Indonesia has many islands.

When I fly, I always hear the pilot says "turbulence"... (I’m sorry, I don't know how it's spelt).

What is turbulence??...It scared me to death...because it is very bumpy when the weather is bad. It makes me wanna puke...

Thanks for your information. Sorry my English is not good enough…

Best regards,

Mayor (Infantry) Daryanto

Hi Daryanto,

I have written a lot about air turbulence. You can view all the FAQ regarding turbulence here and fear of flying here. Additionally, I have 2 videos (repeated ones) for you below..
