Busting the Myth About Turbulence

If you are someone who is quite nervous about flying, then this article is for you. Turbulence is often the thing that sets passengers teeth on edge when it occurs. Even for the most seasoned flyer, turbulence that is a little rough can have you clinging to the edge of your seat, literally.

We may have seen one too many movies where the plane is sent into a complete tail spin or driven down so hard that engine failure is caused. We see pilots lose control of the big bus in the sky and passengers going into a full state of panic. Well relax, this is not a movie.

Hold on to your drinks

A common, and annoying, occurrence, it would be safe to say that when it comes to flying, turbulence is seen to be the most evil thing that could happen during a flight. Turbulence is nerve racking, no doubt, but fear not, you won’t crash.

Pilots consider turbulence a (normal) inconvenience to all on board, not a concern for safety at all. When the plane experiences turbulence and the lights come on to fasten seatbelts this does not mean it is time to kiss the world goodbye.

The advice you receive from hostesses and pilots to buckle up is in the interests of your comfort as well as your safety, which we remind you, is at minimal risk. If you are walking about at such a time there is the chance you may stumble and fall into a seat or another passenger. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to sit down and belt up.

The other risk you run is wearing your juice, tea or coffee on your clothes. Not a huge catastrophe but one that is unwelcome all the same. Ensure your drinks are placed in any holders provided and don’t choose this time to practice balancing hot coffee in your lap.

Safety measures always taken

On the off chance that there might be quite a strong amount of turbulence, the plane will be checked thoroughly post flight. However, rest assured that stringent safe practices are met when it comes to aeroplanes. No passenger or pilot has experienced force enough from turbulence to cause real damage to the plane.
