Dreams about an airplane or flying can be either pleasant or disturbing. If we do not stand firmly on the ground, we may feel as if we do not have full control of our lives, but dreams of airplanes and flying may have a slightly different meaning.
Dreams about airplanes and flying can have both positive and negative meaning, depending on where the airplane is, what speed it moves or what it looks like. Most often, however, dreams about airplanes or flying symbolize our dreams, wishes, desires, ideas, and visions.
When we pray or wish for something, we often look up at the sky; most often because we think of it as a place of our dreams or wishes.
Dream of flying by plane
Summary: You’re headed in the right direction
Flying in an airplane symbolizes positive moments, the realization of new ideas and their successful management. You will be in control of the situation and you will be successful in your life. You have good leadership skills and are able to lead not only yourself but also your colleagues together to achieve the goal.
Dream of flying an airplane (you are a pilot)
Summary: You have your life under control.
You know what direction you are going and what you want to achieve in life. You enjoy the process while heading to your dream destination. You set realistic goals and effortlessly achieve them.
Dream of delayed flight
Summary: Lack of something prevents you from reaching your goal.
There is something in your life that prevents you from realizing your dreams and goals, probably a lack of something. Mostly it is the lack of intangible things like inspiration, motivation or courage; exceptionally lack of money.
Dream of an airplane crash
Summary: Your dreams are not realistic or you doubt them.
Dreams of a plane crash indicate unrealistic or too high goals that you have set for yourself (winning the lottery, becoming a millionaire overnight, losing 20 pounds in two days) that run the risk of not being able to be realized.
A plane crash in your dreams often indicates the lack of self-confidence and doubts you have; you do not believe in yourself and your ability to achieve your goals. You should set such goals that you believe you can achieve and are realistic.
An interesting fact about dreaming about a plane
In my grandmother’s old book of dreams, we can also find that dreaming about a plane means that money is on its way to you. It was also believed that if you dream of being an airplane pilot, you should either accept the job offer you received or invest in something profitable.
In another very old book, I found that if you dream of a plane crash (you are on the ground, not aboard the plane), your dreams will come true soon (your dreams fall from heaven down to you; they transform from intangible to material form).
A few old books about dreams mention money or work success in connection with an airplane, so be sure to consider it as a possibility of the meaning of your dream.
