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."

"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. The odds presented are an estimate of historical risk and not a prediction of future performance.

Fun & interesting

We all know air travel is safe, but it is good to see the relative performance of various brands, especially if you are going somewhere unusual or with an unheard of airline. And the red warning sign next a few major brands is interesting too.

The airline I was interested in (in Mongolia) was not listed, but the developer quickly added it after I contacted them.

Not comforting!

This app is supposed to comfort me, but instead it has made me more scared. I put the details of a flight that recently crashed and details of a flight I’m due to take and it said I have more probability in crashing on the flight I am due to take!!!! I asked for an immediate refund after seeing the results.

Is that is

I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong but it seems like this app only tells you one stat, how many times you would have to fly on that flight until statistically you would go down. Is that it? I thought it was a selection of calming facts about flying.
