In brief: Probably not unless

Probably not, unless you have had a bad flight that put your life at risk and has caused you to have nightmares or flashbacks or waking up in cold sweats or other symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder. Long-term anxiety is not healthy; someone with a fear of flying whose job involves frequent flying may benefit from counseling, or desensitization therapy ahead of time.
