Practicing to fly in an airliner

Flying on a plane for the first time can be daunting, or frightening, to children with special needs. Nashville International Airport in Nashville, Tennessee, hosted a "Mock Flight" event recently to help such children feel comfortable on a plane.

According to a news release, the event gave families the opportunity to have children with autism or developmental disabilities experience a "realistic flight journey" to practice certain touchpoints, like the security checkpoint and boarding procedures. More than 120 guests registered to take the "Mock Flight."
