Panic Disorder: You are right , phobia of flying is common. Probably the most effective approach is cognitive behavioral therapy. I encourage you to get help for this.

See a psychiatrist: Panic attacks and anxiety that start or get worse when you are away from home can be treated. You will feel better once treatment starts to work.
