@explorergrace This is one of those things I wish people who were scared of flying knew more - planes are built to fly. They like flying. In fact, they do it so well, that anyone can take control of one, and bring it in to land, even if they've never touched the controls before (admittedly with a little audio assistance).

I think most people seem to believe planes are always just balanced on a knife edge ready to tumble out of the sky at the slightest wrong move...
