It's not a funny topic, especially to people who also suffer from the fear of flying, but I'm determined to conquer my fear one way or another.
New York, New York (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
In medical terms, this common fear is called aerophobia, but most people know it as the fear of flying and it is estimated to affect as many as 25% of people. Ironically, the face of the airline industry, Airline.com official Spokespilot Oliver Kenyon, suffers from aerophobia and doesn't actually fly, but he now plans to pilot the Airline.com brand as well as conquer his own personal fear.
Even though he is in the unique position of not having flown in years due to his fear of flying, Kenyon has been very active in the strategic planning, development and marketing of community-based forums and was recently named as "Spokespilot" for Airline.com. Airline.com offers a platform for frequent flyers and travelers to discuss and get everything they need related to their trips, all in one website.
Kenyon has flown before - in his childhood at age two and age 14 - experiences he'd prefer to forget. That's how he knows he doesn't want to do it again, but he has decided to face this fear head on and will try to conquer it, just as he has conquered the business world with his numerous successes.
"I did some serious thinking and decided that I'm ready to work on this. It's held me back not just in business but also on a personal level and I'd love to one day travel to the States," Kenyon says. "According to statistics, flying is actually safer than driving," he adds.
From an early age, Kenyon preferred to concentrate his time and efforts on pursuits he enjoyed. Flying was definitely not among them. Cooking was one of them; the other was computers. He had worked at the same restaurant on and off since age 13 as a chef. In late 2011, Kenyon officially launched a site called CPAFix.com. It was this site that led him to leave his full time chef job and become an online entrepreneur.
Now, he's ready to soar, not only in business, but into the "friendly skies." And he wants the whole world to watch. Kenyon plans to chronicle and create a new reality show based around his efforts to overcome the fear of flying. "It's not a funny topic, especially to people who also suffer from the fear of flying, but I'm determined to conquer my fear one way or another," says Kenyon. He decided to take the reality show route because he feels that having a worldwide audience watching his every move and – even some ridicule - could be just the support he needs. "I'm ready to fight this fear and I hope everyone will be behind me to support me in any decisions I take," Kenyon says. The plan for his first flight will be revealed in the coming months after some considerable thinking is done on Kenyon's part.
Airline.com aims to redefine the industry for frequent flyers and casual travelers alike.
