My goal is to help fearful flyers overcome their phobia and join the friendly skies.

Are you afraid to fly, or know someone who is? Then Michael Salem, once petrified of flying, and author of "Brave Flyer: How to End Your Fear of Flying," may be able to eliminate those fears forever.®, the premier online air travel information tool and creator of the award-winning app, Seat Alerts®, went One-on-One with Michael Salem to learn how he overcame his fear of flying and how thousands of travelers can overcome the same fear.

For years, Michael Salem counted himself among the ranks of petrified flyers. Unable to get on a plane, Michael recalled many missed opportunities, both personal and professional, which led to his search for a solution that would end his fear of flying. His book is a culmination of research, self-exploration, and experimentation resulting in a collection of facts, myths, and techniques designed to help fearful flyers overcome their phobia and join the friendly skies.

"From my research, I have learned that most fearful flyers are not overly concerned with the possibility of an airline accident," Salem explains. "This is exactly why statistics that tell you how driving a car is more dangerous than being on a plane, or how well planes are engineered, will do little to calm your fears.”

"Brave Flyer" focuses on the underlying causes of Pteromerhanophobia, the unwarranted, irrational and extreme fear of flying. The book explores and offers solutions to the key root causes of the fear, such as loss of control, turbulence, claustrophobia, fear of heights, and others.
