Taking flight without fear

Medo de Voar (Fear of Flying) is an app that helps people suffering from aviatophobia control their fears. It does this by providing an explanation for the noises and vibrations of the plane as well give information on security measures that can be taken to feel safer. It also proposes exercises to lower stress levels.
