The fear of flying app - Am I Going Down? is a flight risk calculator designed to reassure and empower anyone with a fear of flying. What are the odds of my plane crashing? Enter your flight details, and using real flight data, the app perfectly demonstrates the unlikelihood of your flight going down. How safe is your next flight? Crashes may make the headlines, but they’re incredibly rare, and when they do happen, seldom lead to injury. With those facts, there’s no need for nervous flyers to fall back on anything but the statistics. Am I Going Down? will tell you how and why you have only a millions-to-one chance of crashing, allowing you to fight fear with information. New York Times “In most cases a normal flight will give you a one in five million, or one in 10 million, chance of crashing, so that tends to reassure most people.” The Economist "[The app] wants to reassure nervous flyers that they are all but guaranteed to reach their destination in one piece." Daily Mail "'Am I Going Down?' app uses real flight statistics to analyse flight safety." Bustle "One of the only sources providing such in-depth coverage of safety statistics in the aviation world." Also featured in: CNN, Washington Post, Daily Telegraph, Quartz, Forbes, Newsweek, Gizmodo, Business Insider, Gadget Show, and many more! — Disclaimer: While "Am I Going Down?" is based on published flight and crash statistics to give an indication of flight safety, the app is intended for entertainment purposes only.

I am a nervous flyer. Was feeling pretty good about my flight (1 in 10m chance of crashing) until the airline changed the plane. Now the risk is 1 in 5 million. Still great odds, but double the chance I had. Probably would’ve been better off never seeing the odds. Ugh. Have no idea if these are accurate statistics, but have started checking the app for best airlines/planes prior to booking. Maybe a little too much info for nervous flyers? Kind of makes you more nervous if your flight is anything but dark green in all the categories. Regardless-it’s a great app. Fun to put in random itineraries and see what happens.
This app is ridiculous, the reviews have to be fake lol it doesn’t even have Jet Blue as an airline option! And when you put in all the info, al it does is give you the statistics of you going down. Mine was 1 in 5,000,000. I could’ve googled that.
Helped me a lot with my anxiety!
I am a nervous flyer and this helps
Excelent for people who have a fear of flying like me!!!
I tried inputting the worst airline, the worst departure, and the worst destination, along with the worst airplane and it still gave only a 1 in 300,000 or so chance of going down, so there is room to doubt methods, etc.
Puts the fear of flying into sardonic and morbid perspective.
Surprisingly useful. Thank you.
Just love it
