Safety First This online magazine offers the most comprehensive information on flight safety available. As well as the latest news, the editors post a discussion board, a safety center that even has survivors' tips in case you're ever involved in a plane crash, and crash statistics which can be searched by airline, type of aircraft and date (also available at crashdatabase.com). In addition, for the steely nerved there are hundreds of pictures and videos of crashes and crash sites since 1951.
The Brighter Side Contains more links to self-help sites for phobic flyers than any other site - from online help courses to safety tips. With starting evenhandedness, it also carries a terrifying Fear of Flying section, not recommended for anyone remotely nervous about boarding an airplane. Those wanting something a little more uplifting may prefer the Fun of Flying anecdotes.
Everything You Were Afraid to Ask On a site detailing their work at the San Fransisco-based Fear of Flying Clinic, managers have posted answers to 18 commonly asked questions about flight safety. Find out if Boeing planes are safe, how planes are maintained and which parts of a flight are the most dangerous.
Soar Above Fear The site for the Seminars on Aeroanxiety Relief (SOAR), an American firm that runs courses to help sufferers overcome their flying fears, offers an online chat room. There is a weekly live chat at 9 p.m. E.T. (1 a.m. GMT) every Wednesday.
All The Facts This site has an excellent statistics section that lists crashes by cause, type of aircraft and airline. It also provides airline safety ratings, a complete history of plane crashes, and even recordings of cockpit warning sounds.
