There was a 1 in 3.37 billion chance of dying in a commercial airline plane crash between 2012 – 2016.
By contrast, 95% of transportation deaths occurred on the highway.
And yet, 1 and 3 Americans are still afraid of flying.
Flying is objectively much safer than any other form of transportation. But we are afraid of things we don’t do every day. When we do something on a regular basis, we become casual with the risk associated with it.
Stop worrying about everything that can go wrong and start believing everything that can go right.
