Eric Prydz opens up about fear of flying in Zane Lowe interview

After launching Pryda 15 Vol III, Eric Prydz recently sat down with Zane Lowe on Apple Music Beats 1, ahead of his first episode of EPIC Radio since 2017. Discussing a range of topics throughout the interview, Pryda (aka Eric Prydz) told the former BBC Radio 1 presenter about his intense fear of flying, adding:

“I’ve tried everything. I’ve seen every idiot with his own turn on how to sort it. The first therapist I met in Stockholm promised to sort me out, and he gave me his address, so I went there and it was an air-field. He had his own plane so he said we would just drive up and down but then he took off, and I had a full scale panic attack in a plane that’s smaller than… well… I was actually considering suing him. It’s more a control thing, I’m not scared we are gonna crash.”

With Prydz touring all around the world, his fear of flight has certainly not made his travel arrangements easy over the years, with his routes having to be well thought-out to minimise flight time, but Prydz also added that the bigger British Airways planes are something he feels less anxious about, when taking trans-atlantic flights.
