Fear of flying
An irrational fear of flying is called aerophobia. Aerophobia also refers to irrational fear of fresh air or drafts of air. From the Greek "aero-", air or gas + "phobos", fear. A virtual reality program that simulates the experience of take-offs, landings, normal flying and turbulence reportedly helps some people overcome their fear of flying.
