Tips for Overcoming Flight Fright !



Flying is very, very interesting and exciting. That is why it is the most attractive and fastest mode of transportation. It is preferable to driving. However, one disadvantage of flying is the extreme impact of a crash. It is very rare to find survivors. This has discouraged many potential flyers from flying. They either prefer to drive or refuse to travel. There are others who love flying but anxiety is written all over their face as they board the flight. The possibility of a crash according to findings by is that the possibility of a crash is 1 of 5,000., Africa’s Number 1 Hotel Booking Portal gives you some tips on how to surmount flight fright thereby ensuring that you enjoy the flight.


If you are scared of flying, you would do well to arrive at the airport early. This will give you enough opportunity to observe the operations at the airport. How people are briskly leaving and boarding various airplanes with so much confidence. You can see that nothing actually happened to them. Observing others may probably serve as a confidence booster.


Identifying the cause of your anxiety whenever you fly will go a long way in helping you to conquer flight anxiety. Ask yourself why are you anxious? Most times, it is the fear of the turbulence, take-off, crashes and landing that causes anxiety. This is peculiar to every flyer. However, there are other identifiable causes. So, ensure that you distract yourself when you are on board. Don’t allow your mind to focus too much on the negatives of flying. Importantly, don’t watch a movie that involves an air crash as this will obviously help in decreasing your fear of flying.


Flying a plane involves four steps namely Gravity, Drag, Lift and thrust. Understanding these steps will help you to be more comfortable with flying when the plane is taking-off, landing as well as encountering mechanical problems. According the FlyFright, statistics reveal that 73% of fearful flyers are afraid of mechanical problems during flight. Hence, acquiring a bit of knowledge will also play its part.


If you know you can pull through a flight thinking that you are in a bus when you are actually in a plane will make you feel better, why not? However, don’t bother sit close to the window as this would cloud your thoughts and the fright will rush-in like lightening.


Sitting at the back of a plane doesn’t help someone that is always inundated by flying. So, ensure that you select a seat at the front or middle of the plane. But, if you are unable to secure any of these seats, never mind, you can sit at the back. You will not feel the effect of any turbulence because the plane seats are durable and rugged enough to protect you!

Insurgency and the Face of Education!

Security is the safety from danger, fighting, war, sickness and mismanagement. A situation where peace , freedom ,health, love and quietness prevails giving guarantee and assurance for life, health and full opportunities for the development of individuals ,families ,communities and countries in all areas of endeavors to maximum capacity. Any said or not said, planned or designed, done or not done that militates against securing can therefore be said to be challenge to society.

However one can easily identify many factors that pose serious security challenge in Nigeria. These include communal, herbal clashes, sectarian violence, religious conflicts, and kidnapping, armed robbery. Kidnapping of pupils and student from rich parent background are commonly experienced in the southern parts of country .communal and tribal clashes frequently experience in the northern part of the country like Borno, Taraba, and Nasarawa state.

Religious conflicts which for long have continued to post major challenges to security in Nigeria, particularly in the northern part of the state specifically and currently the northern eastern zone of the country in the likes of Adamawa, Yobe, Borno, Bauchi, and Gombe, are the most recent but most heinous, brutal and savage. The devastation and destruction of both human lives and properties inflected upon those living in the states are beyond imagination. The importance of education in the life of a person can never be overemphasizes in both temporal and spiritual aspects of human existence, education is very paramount .it is the light that shows the way by removing the darkness of ignorance. It is the salts that give taste to life. The greatest favors one can do to himself is to get educated and to others to give them education.

Insurgency violent, conflicts or war, threats of such intimidation an abuse can have very serious and permanent effects on education thus not only slowing down any progress or development of potentialities available giving prominence to mediocrity at the priority because of excellence . When and where there is insecurity the priority become survival.That is the first natural instinct. The other entire thing education inclusive becomes secondary school are closed , pupils and student stay out of school or institution for as long as the insecurity persists where school building and property are destroyed or looted the situation becomes moiré complex, the effects more challenging . Sad as this situation may look if is better than cases where student are pursued and killed in their school.

This can be more brutal? Evil? How can there be education if there are no people to receive education? Student and pupils that are lucky to escape such brutality may be marred physical, intellectual or psychological for life, and sentenced for a life cripple. Come to think of these for a moment, those young boys and girls kidnapped from school by insurgence to be used as human shields, chips for ransom bargaining sex slave, boy soldiers or sold on tightly as slave. What can be more of evil, the effects on education is just staging and mind blowing.All these atrocities have been curetted on students in potiskum, Damaturu in Yobe state, chibok in Borno state, talk less of all the school destroyed in all the state in the north eastern part of Nigeria by religious insurgent.

The effects on education is terrible, retrogressive, destructive and damaging to the overall human progress and conflicts raging mercilessly, economics resources cannot meet up with such daunting challenges. At these moment, Nigeria has survive despite faced by insecurity and insurgent, not simply by the wisdom or vision of those in high office, but because of we the people have remained faithfully and committed to ensuring the sustainability and unity of our dear country which means nothing to others, but something to us .May the labor of our heroes never in vain.
