premium courses

Our premium courses are designed for those who feel they’d rather be on a fear of flying course with fewer participants with a maximum of just four people. The result is a much more personal and discreet environment, with time to ask every question on your mind, and really get to the source of your fear of flying.

This is a one day course starting at the T5 London Heathrow Sofitel followed by two scheduled accompanied BA flights. You will spend two and a half hours of consultation with one of our most experienced pilots Captain Gordon Black and two hours with our psychologist, and phobia expert, Patricia Furness-Smith. You will then be accompanied by them both* on two scheduled BA domestic flights, during which you will be able to put into practice everything you have learned during the day, and find out all about those noises and sensations, first hand. The day starts around 9am and the flight arrives back around 8pm. A signed copy of our recently published "Flying with Confidence" book is included in the price of the course. Please call us on 01252 793250 if you have any questions about this course, or simply book onto the course online and we will be in touch.

Our next course is on Wednesday 25th April 2018 and costs £1299 includes inclusive of VAT. This course is available to book online, equally you are welcome to give us a call to book your place. Please call us if you have any questions whatsoever.


We have an incredible success rate with this course, here are a couple of testimonials from recent courses which is typical of the feedback we receive:



A quick note to say thank you for potentially changing my life. An email doesn't  really seem to do it justice! Having not flown regularly for quite a few years, I was extremely  nervous before I attended the course, however, with the right attitude, it has truly worked  wonders! Kudos to Steve and Patricia for all their hard work. By the end of the day, I felt like  they  were both life-long friends. For the first time in ten years, I genuinely enjoyed a  flight. Can we go again tomorrow?

 Best regards

 Neil Robertson


Just a note to say how transformed my life has been since I attended the BA premium Flying with Confidence Course on 2 June.

For many years I have been so distressed by the thought of flying and was such a wreck on the few flights I did take that my family refused to travel with me! Needless to say I used to do everything I could to avoid flying.

My daughter moved to New York in March and I knew then that I had to do something. The course was fantastic. Understanding the basic mechanics of flying has helped me enormously as has understanding what all the noises mean. I did think beforehand that the technical session would be more helpful but was most surprised to find the psychological session equally valuable. 

Since the course I have been to Italy for a short break and also to New York to see my daughter. In fact I feel so much calmer about flying that I have booked to go back to New York on December 11 with two girlfriends (BA of course!). 
A huge thank you to Captain Steve Allright and Patricia Furness-Smith for their kindness and calmness on the day. 

Kind regards

 I would like to thank you and Patricia for your tireless commitment and endless patience with me and the others on Thursday. To feel confident to ask all of those seemingly daft questions, without feeling foolish, was immensely reassuring. 

The course was the best investment I have made for a very long time! Of particular value, was the opportunity to spend one to one time with yourself and Patricia, during the two flights. This enabled me to embed much of the input from earlier in the day.

I was delighted - and surprised - that I actually relaxed and enjoyed aspects of the flight - particularly on the second leg, when I really began to put the earlier teaching into practice.

I will be flying to New York in January, with my sister and my sister-in-law.(I really did not think I would be saying that!).

I never thought I’d get over the claustrophobic feeling I used to get when I stepped inside a plane. But here I am about to jet off to America, and it’s all down to the staff at Flying with Confidence. I can’t thank them enough.
