Some people say that traveling by air is the greatest way of visiting places whereas others don’t agree.

I think that it’s not reasonable to avoid travelling by air at all. First of all, it’s usually cheaper. Second, it’s way faster. If you fly far away, you save plenty of time. It’s also more comfortable. Long journeys wear you a lot.

At the same time there are people who say that if you travel by air and you have a crash, there is no chance for you to survive. So it’s better to use other means of transportations.


soch 001 004

In my opinion these people have a point. If an aircraft crashes the chances of surviving are almost zero. Nevertheless, the present of aircraft crashes is really little. There is way more chances to get into a car accident or a train crash.

In conclusion, I'd like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support traveling by air against the ones that support cars, trains or ships, we'll see that the facts that support aircrafts outweigh those against.
