A lot of people still get scared to use plane, and would rather use land transportation vehicles for their travels. But this can be frustrating to a lot of people having this phobia because they are unable to travel to places abroad and arrive at their destination quicker. Flying brings in convenience for your travels, and people that suffer from this phobia should not be scared because of the following reasons.
Reckless driving only happens on land
Reckless driving happens everyday by people operating land motor vehicles because of human errors wherein they would multi-task as they drive, using their cellphone while driving, eating, and even failure to use blinker signals. But in the air, pilots are more cautious because hundreds of lives depend on them. They are not allowed to take flight unless it has been cleared and it is already safe to fly, and pilots and cabin crews are greatly follow regulations regarding flying hazards to prevent accidents from happening.
Airplanes have now been equipped with better and durable materials that can withstand environmental factors that detriment its structural integrity as it is built with mil t 9046 titanium to ensure that corrosion is far away from munching the metals as possible. These are also equipped with 304 stainless steel tubing that are stronger and requires little maintenance.
When it comes to structural integrity, both high quality stainless steel and titanium are some of the best materials to be used as these are highly resistant from corrosion, and greatly reduces the chances of problems occuring due to poor materials used or breaking in an area.
Air traffic control
Pilots have a lot of eyes to watch over them as they fly despite not be able to see the actual “road”. Air traffic control assists pilots all day and all night using radar procedures to track the airplanes, give out instructions, informations, and clearance as to whether they can land, take off, or not. Air traffic control ensures that every flight and every passenger safely arrives at their destination without encountering any problems along the way.
Pilots, cabin crews, traffic enforcers, and all other flight personnels are quipped with knowledge and training. Far more rigorous than having a driver’s license. Pilots are required to go through these trainings and certification processes to ensure that they are in good shape to actually fly an airplane. And most of the airline companies require their pilots to attend at least 2 years in college, unlike having a driver’s license wherein you will only need to pass the pen and paper test and driving test.
