SkyGuru is an innovative new smartphone app, developed by pilot and psychologist Alex Gervash, that is designed to comfort and sooth the concerns of passengers suffering from different degrees of aerophobia, or the fear of flight.

This app battles aerophobia with the simple power of information. A lot of people who feel nervous during flight feel that way because they don't feel in control of the situation or in control of potentially complicated situations. SkyGuru battles this by constantly keeping passengers informed of everything from flight times to weather conditions. The app even explains why turbulence feels unpleasant, and why certain sounds or sensations occur.

By using a constant flow of information to assuage user's fears, SkyGuru effectively reduces aerophobia and helps users enjoy a more comfortable flight.
