Sometimes while a flight takes off, I become nervous. I would like to know which mantra to recite or which deity to invoke.
I know to remove fear of water while travelling in water one may chant शं नो वरुणः.

    The Vishnu Shodasha Nama Stotra prescribes 'Pravaase Cha Trivikramam' - Think of Lord Trivikrama during journeys. Since flight is also a form of journey maybe it may be what you are looking for. – Surya Nov 13 '17 at 7:25
  • Also, the same Stotra also prescribes 'Jalamadhye Varaham cha' - Think of Varaha when amidst waters. – Surya Nov 13 '17 at 7:26
  • @Surya Pravase means " when you are in a foreign land" – Rickross Nov 13 '17 at 7:31
  • @Rickross Oh thanks for the correction. Then will 'Gamane Vaamanam Caiva' (Think of Vamana while travelling) fit the description of a journey? – Surya Nov 13 '17 at 7:33
  • Yes that fits... But that applies to all kinds of journeys.. As OP says while traveling through water he thinks one should chant a Vedic mantra for Varuna. But according to the verse you have given one should think of Vamana in that case too.@Surya – Rickross Nov 13 '17 at 7:37
