For people who are afraid of flying the journey can be a miserable one. But a new app is aiming to help reduce people’s fears by letting them know what to expect.
The MyFlight Forecast app was developed by pilot Timothy Griffin and takes into account the weather for each flight. It can then inform people what to expect when it comes to turbulence and potential delays.
The app serves as a reminder that turbulence is normal and generally safe. Timothy explained:
“Many of those who suffer from fear, find relief in understanding. By understanding aviation weather, and how it may affect their particular flight, passengers will feel more at ease when they fly.”
The app is free for iPhone and Android.
