New App Helps Ease Fear of Flying

According to the Top 100 Phobia List, 25 million Americans share a fear of flying. So, it comes as no surprise that the company SOAR Inc., founded by Captain Tom Bunn, airline captain and licensed therapist, has developed a free app to address this very issue.

The goal of this App is to provide a sense of relief to those suffering from this very real phobia. It is advertised as a source for gaining better control over things like flight anxiety, claustrophobia, and panic–all symptoms related to the fear of flying.

The app contains in-app purchases options, ranging from $19.99-$59.99, such as videos that walk the user through things like understanding turbulence, anxiety management tools, and what’s going on in the cockpit.

SOAR is currently rated five out of five stars on iTunes, and has been reviewed as an “excellent program” and a “great companion” by its users.

If you happen to be one of those 25 million Americans who fear flying, download SOAR on iTunes or Google Play and give it a try.
