You're not alone if you have aviophobia, which is the fear of flying and prefer to travel any other way but that way. I also have aviophobia and prefer to either drive or take the Amtrak on long distant travels.

I made a list of my 4 favorite and popular musicians that share aviophobia with me. I've never enjoyed flying in a plane and certainly didn't enjoy it the last time when I was 5. I remember the little turbulence I felt I would be praying to God that I wouldn't lie to my parents. There are even people who are afraid of being in a car which must make life even harder on them. Even the time I was in high school, I was a Junior at Coronado High School when we spent the whole day watching the news on September 11, 2001. That was just another reminder of why I feared flying and will always be afraid to fly. Now TMZ caught up with Post Malone and discussed that close call he had in the sky.

As many as 12.5% of Americans struggle with a phobia in the United States.
