Dear All


I have always been afraid of flying although have not stopped from flying - take off and turbulence were bad times and I would be crying etc.


2 weeks before flying I did Captain Keith's course and I found that the explanations and coping strategies learnt made the process a lot more pleasant.  I won't say that I am entirly comfortable but there were no tears during my flight to and from Australia which included a particularly long stretch of turbulent air from Hong Kong to London.


For the first time I managed to sleep for significant periods on the plane and even fell asleep during the turbulence.


I would recommend the course at Alton to anyone who can make it and whilst I would not describe myself as totally cured the improvement was significant.

Hi Sarah,

Well done!

Im so glad it has worked for you, im finding reading the book over and over is working wonders. Something new "sinks" in everyday.

The latest one being Captain keith saying:- "Flying is just a job, which does not incur life insurance penalties!"

Thanks Sarah
