"If you ever want me to fly with you, just tell me 8 to 10 hours before"
Travis Barker has shared how he overcame his fear of flying.
The drummer, who suffered third-degree burns when he was involved in a plane crash in 2008 hadn’t stepped foot on a plane in 13 years.
Only Travis and his friend Adam Goldstein survived the crash, leaving Travis in hospital for almost 3 months and undergoing 27 surgeries.
Last summer, Travis conquered his fear of flying, jetting abroad with partner Kourtney Kardashian. Speaking about how he overcame his fear, Travis told GQ:
“She’s been everywhere beautiful in the world… (places) that I’ve never even heard of”

“I was like, ‘If you ever want me to fly with you, just tell me 8 to 10 hours before’”
Continuing on, Travis said that when he did travel for the first time with Kourtney on the day he tried to ‘get out of it’.
Finding support from Kourtney, he continued:
“She’s like, ‘I’m gonna spend the night with you. I’m staying the night with you and we’re gonna go to the airport”
“She just knew, and she stuck by me and toughed it out. And it was the best flight. And I wasn’t scared once.”
