Thinking about booking a course?
  • We have been running courses since 1986, and in that time we?ve seen many people with many different fears. Our extensive experience has allowed us to develop a course that not only helps first time flyers, but also those who?ve flown before. Our team of helpers has enormous experience in helping all kinds of people overcome their fears.
    Over the years several thousand people who are claustrophobic or who suffer from a fear of heights have attended our courses. During the afternoon part of our courses our Psychologist explains why we suffer from these types of fear and shows you what you can do to control them. You will also be taught relaxation techniques that you can put into practice on the flight.
    Having had over 50,000 people attend our fear of flying course, we have substantial evidence of how successful they are, and we have a 98% success rate based on the feedback we receive. Take a look at our testimonials to read typical feedback from our courses.
