My Boyfriend is Deathly Afraid to Fly! Please Help!

Getting over your fear of flying

Hello Captain Lim!

I came across your site while researching fear of flight and thought you could be of great help.

My boyfriend and I have been together for about 3 years and we have never been on a trip together. He is 33 and has never left the country; I am 28 and have been to all 7 continents and over 40 countries. I work in travel, I eat sleep live and breathe travel, and I somehow managed to fall in love with the one person who hates what I love most - because he is afraid.

His reasons vary from being uncomfortable on long flights, to fear of a plane malfunction/crash, to terrorism, to traveling to unsafe places, to fear of the unknown. But travel is such a huge part of my life that I want to figure out a way to make him less afraid.

It's a touchy subject between us, because neither one of us will budge but I don't want to pressure him TOO much. We are going to Africa in a few months and he is invited... but saying no.

My parents even got him a passport holder, luggage tags, TSA locks and all the paperwork needed for passport as a Christmas gift. But still.

This will be the 3rd trip he has been offered by my family and me that he has turned down and I'm just not sure what I can do to make him feel better.

He's traveled here and there for work, but always domestically, never internationally, and he even hates that.

Is there anything you can suggest?

Thank you so much.

Is it possible for a Boeing 777 to fly at 731 mph?

How Does The Jet Stream Work?
Hi Captain,

Last week Flight Radar showed a British Airways Boeing 777-333 from Houston-London doing 731 mph over Ireland,

1. Is that possible?

2. Are there speed restrictions over land and is it different than flying over the Atlantic?

3. Where does the jet stream roughly ends, east - west USA - Europe?.

By Billy Boey

Destiny sets an unexpected journey for Captain Lim Khoy Hing. Instead of becoming a teacher that he envisioned himself to be, life made him take on a journey into the aviation industry. Now retired, Captain Lim did not contend himself to stay home and relax. He continued to be active in his line of work to inspire and educate fearful flyers, as well as aspiring pilots through his book Life in the Skies. POPCLUB catches up with the former commercial airline captain to talk about his book and his sky high journey.

Everything we do in life has its own degree of risk.

When I found out that I was invited to attend the TEDxPetalingStreet event and that it was going to be conducted mostly in the Mandarin dialect, I second guessed myself and wondered if I should even go. You see, I’m a little embarrassed to admit that my knowledge of this dialect is close to an elementary school-goer’s level, especially when it comes to speaking the language.

Bumps in the Air

(Below is my contribution to the Travel 3Sixty in-flight magaine for October 2015)

Some air travellers describe their encounter with air pockets as dropping thousands of feet.

I have often explained that the experience is similar to travelling on land where a smooth road suddenly gives way to bumps and potholes, making the journey a little uncomfortable.

In spite of the term being quoted so often, it is in fact impossible for there to be a ‘pocket’ in the sky as air vacuum cannot exist in the atmosphere.
