How to behave during turbulence to save your nerves and avoid injury. Part 2

How to behave during turbulence to save your nerves and avoid injury. Part 2 Of course, professional airline employees always calculate the reality of the danger of turbulent zones. Otherwise, they would announce them every 15-20 minutes, invariably causing panic among passengers. However, if such a signal is received, you must remain in your seat and fasten your seat belt.

The moment when it is better to be fastened can also be recognized by yourself. For example, if the flight attendant wants to quickly return the food cart to its place, this is a sure signal that the next moment he will return and announce that he needs to sit in the seat, raise its back and buckle up.

It is also worth listening to the following recommendations, which will minimize the risks of entering the turbulent zone during the flight.

1. It is better to fly early in the morning. Because at the beginning of the day, the air is at more stable temperatures. It is for this reason that all kinds of balloon shows are held in the morning hours.

2. If there is a choice, it is better to prefer the largest vessel possible. This will provide fewer shocks, even when entering the danger zone.

3. With rare flights, it is better to postpone the trip until autumn or spring. This will reduce the chance of abrupt vertical air currents in the path, which are the cause of severe convective turbulence.

4. During a winter flight, if possible, it is worth booking a flight with a more southerly route and connections. This will prevent getting into ice or a snow storm. In the summer months, on the contrary, it is better to choose the northern route, which will reduce the chance of getting into a daytime thunderstorm.

From this series of articles, we can conclude that there is nothing unusual about turbulence. Therefore, you should not panic because of the shocks. But even if there are fleeting sensations of discomfort, this is a completely normal reaction of the brain to an emergency situation. It is important at the same time to breathe deeply and be sure that this trouble in most cases will pass even before it can be realized.
