Side Notes

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.
