Q: I have a serious fear of flying. I'm not afraid because of being in the sky, but I have terrible claustrophobia and am so afraid of how I will feel once I'm in the plane and can't get off. I haven't flown in 25 years because of this. Is there anywhere I can go to get help where I can actually get on a plane to see how I would feel on a flight and maybe get some counseling? I want to travel so badly, but I’m held back because of my fear. Any help would be appreciated.
