Many people suffer from a fear of flying. Dramatic T.V. shows and movies will lead you to believe that extreme turbulence and plane crashes are not only common, but nearly impossible to survive.
In truth, the likelihood of being in a plane crash is extremely low — one to one million, in fact. And, according to the National Transportation Safety Board, 95.7 percent of the passengers involved in plane accidents make it out alive. These statistics should help give you peace of mind before you get on a plane.
However, a little extra reassurance never hurts for anyone out there who is still feeling timid. If you do feel a little queasy next time you need to book a flight, there are 42 airlines that have never suffered a fatal accident in their history, according to Plane Crash Info.
