We have had a number of people reaching out to find out more about the “What If’s” of Engine Failures, more specifically, the recent events that took place on the Texas bound Southwest Airlines Flight, that resulted in a cabin pressurization loss. Here is what you can expect:
It will not just be Southwest Airlines that is required to deal with the incident that took place, however, it will be every 737 that uses this engine type. The FAA has since, after investigation, issued what’s known as an “AD”, or Airworthiness Directive. This is essentially like a recall on your car. It requires that every airline that has this engine type in their fleet, to meet their requirement to make any necessary replacements, repairs or inspections to prevent this from happening again. It is to our understanding that this AD has been issued, and inspections on the fleet of 737’s has commenced.

Coming soon to FlyHome’s Turbulence forecast
One of the most common producers of turbulence, especially in the winter months, is the location, and velocity of the jet stream. Up until now, flying passengers would have very limited information as to the whereabouts of the jet stream. FlyHome will be releasing a new addition to our turbulence page, which will show the jet stream forecast for the mid 30,000ft altitudes, which will further assist the passenger in knowing the conditions for their flight! Enjoy it!
Below you will find the Top 10 questions that fearful flyers present to their instructors when beginning their fear of flying relief training.
✔ Turbulence, and how will it affect my plane, is it safe?
✔ Its not so much the turbulence, it’s the anticipation of not knowing when and if it will come, can I fix this?
✔ Why Should I trust pilots that I’ve never met?
✔ Planes look really close when I look out the window, how do I know we aren’t TOO close?
✔ How will the weather affect our flight?
✔ Will this weather be bumpy?
✔ What if I have a panic attack on board?
✔ I had a horrible flight in the past, and I haven’t been able to move past it, why could this be?
✔ I never had a fear of flying in the past, why did I just develop one now?
✔ I hate the feeling on take-off, is there a way to overcome that sensation?
If any or all of these questions play on your mind prior to air travel, the instructors at FlyHome can Help!

“…I wanted to reach out and let you know that I had the best flights I ever have had! I even slept for the majority of both flights, and I even fell asleep during turbulence and during take off on my second flight!! Only to wake up gliding smoothly along. Wow it’s like I am a completely different person. I’ve never been able to sleep on the plane let alone during turbulence or takeoff. I found that I was reminding myself when we were bumping around how little we were actually varying in altitude. The plane felt stronger to me, even though it was no different than any other plane but I knew more about it and all the systems in place. I kept finding myself saying “what would Tim say right now” and then answering myself saying “everything is completely normal”.
You may never know how much that pre-flight call at the airport meant. I was hugging my partner outside begging to be driven home and saying things like, “I can’t do this”. I reluctantly went into the airport thinking, “ok if this anxiety gets any worse I will just turn around.” When I got through security and your number came up on my phone, it was all of a sudden a relief. You calmed me down and explained what I can expect on the flight and instantly I felt ready and prepared. I didn’t want to turn back at that point, I knew I could do this!
As we pushed back from the gate and I heard all those “scary noises” and the lights flicked off for a second and turned back on, I smiled to myself as I knew what all of that meant, I knew this was normal and everything was gonna be ok.
I know I will need to keep working on the normalization of flying, but this really has changed my life. I love to travel and see the world and if I don’t have to constantly worry about the flying part of travel this really has saved me many, many unnecessary stressful hours.
Thank you so much for everything…”

I made it back! I just want to say that you so much for everything you have done. You have changed my life in so many ways you can’t imagine. Both flights there were fine, no turbulence, but the flights back from Cancun to Mexico City were kind of bumpy, but I was ok. The Flight from Mexico City to LAX was really really bad, we hit a storm and it was bumpy the whole way for 3:45 min. I was really nervous but I didn’t panic. I kept saying what would Tim do/say and I was fine.
Thank you again for your time and your classes I would 1000% refer anyone to you. You made me fly again without fear!!!! I honestly didn’t think it would happen ever but now I am excited to travel and I know more I do it the better it will be. I just have to remind myself turbulence is normal and planes are meant to fly!
Thank you again!…”
Finally home and I just know that words are not enough in how you helped me. I am so grateful that I found you and wish I did many years ago!! You are truly a rare commodity. I will be uploading a pic with a testimonial on your website and we better stay in touch!! Thanks for being there for me in many ways. I feel as if I made a friend…”
You too, can conquer your Fear of Flying
“This has become my mantra. People with anxiety understand that we need to break the constant barrage of negative and alarming thoughts that run through our head when it comes to the Fear of Flying. Tim arms you with knowledge, expertise, and an awareness that everything will be fine as long as you remember ” what would Tim say…”. There are many different reasons why people fear flying. Tim starts by pin pointing your reason and then discusses what you need to get beyond that fear on a very personal level. This is NOT a canned presentation. It is tailored to your personal needs and concerns. My first flight is tomorrow and I am ready!”
