Birkat haGomeil on an airplane flight


This topic is debated among halachic authorities, but Rav Moshe Feinstein ruled that one recites Birkat haGomeil after any airplane flight. He compared it with travelling in a boat; a boat saves one from drowning and so a boat trip warrants Birkat haGomeil, and a plane saves one from falling through the air and so a plane trip warrants the same.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:59)

Have a great day,
