ahhh I see. What I call a direct trigger (my made up term to help me sort triggers). For me, helicopters are a direct trigger because they were a major part of my trauma. Being startled by a door alarm that sounds like a pager tone .... indirect trigger. I feel equipped to deal with, and give suggestions on, how to deal with indirect triggers. For the direct triggers, I suggest working closely with a trauma therapist and/or an occupational therapist. They can assist you in Exposure Therapy. My helicopter exposure idea will only happen if my trauma therapist signs off on it. I'm sorry I can't be more help with this one.
