When I flew to LA just after 9/11 so many people asked me if I was petrified at the thought of it. In truth, it was probably the safest time to fly. The fact is, it's much safer to fly than it is to drive and you've probably got a bigger chance of being struck by lightning than going down in a plane. But try telling that to the guy sitting next to you that's clutching the seat so tightly his fingers are turning white. Turbcast is an air travel application for iphone and ipad that delivers stone cold information to allay the fears of flying for even the most white knuckled of passengers.                                         
 
What if there was a way to know in advance before you arrive at the airport whether your flight will be smooth? What if you knew that the only turbulence you need to worry about was the first five minutes after takeoff? By knowing what to expect it can help you be mentally prepared for turbulence. Likewise,  if your flight is forecast to be smooth skies it can provide you greater relieve too. Lack of control & understanding of turbulence gives travelers anxiety. For example, did you know that there were four different types of turbulence? No, neither did i. Turbulence is always going to happen (especially every time i fly over India, it seems) but luckily, now there's an app for it.  Whether it's called air pockets or bumps this app will unlock the mystery about turbulence. It's a simple to use and cost effective app that was designed for any traveler or person with a mild case of fear of flying. Just type your travel itinerary into the app and  it will cross reference aviation weather data to give you a better complete forecast on the  chances of turbulence happening on your flight. It checks the departure point, cruise flight & arrival point.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
Turbcast is great for anyone who travels and provides self-help tips and  videos explaining air turbulence  and is available in 4 languages.

So don't lose any more sleep over your next flight and let Turbcast overcome your fear of flying with confidence. Then the only thing you have to worry about the guy in the next seat not throwing up over you.
