Have a look inside the plane we use for our fear of flying course. We've wired it up for sound and video so that we can re-create, as far as possible, the sites and sounds of a real plane.
Unlike any other course in the world we can get you as near to the real thing as possible...without actually flying.

I don't ever take the view that people are moaning...even a Chelsea fan. It's a stressful business being anxious about flying so I understand.
Actually the course may well cure your fear...we just don't advertise on the basis of silly figures like 99% etc. Only one person that has been on the course has failed to fly. I'll run the course just for you if necessary!

Hi G
As you know you've been unfortunate on this site so far because I missed one of the threads and ended up forgetting to reply to you. Now, the cup final is getting in the way of the next course. I'll take this opportunity if I may to describe the course so that other people can see as well.

The course that we run does help people for the following reasons it seems.

We do not say that we will cure your fear of flying, because the fear belongs to you and only you can cure it HOWEVER we think we can prepare you as well as is possible for you to make the necessary changes to the way you see flying so that you will fly with less fear than you have now. This puts a responsiblity on the anxious flyer and more so on us to provide you with every possible strategy for dealing with your fear.


The world fear of flying conference in Montreal recommended that courses be

The course should INVOLVE fearful flyers.

We certainly include those elements and many more of course, but it seems that it's more popular to see hypnotists, life coaches, hypnotists and other less direct therarpies. I can understand the attraction of responding to an advertisement that says things like "we can cure your fear of flying in 2 sessions for ten dollars."
There's almost a catch 22 situation, someone says they can cure you but if they don't it's because you are not using 'their method' correctly. Doesn't seem very fair to me.

I'm amazed that sitting in a defunct aircraft playing some sounds and videos and answering questions can help people to overcome their fears. But I would be amazed because I don't suffer the fear in the first place...I love flying. But because I'm an airline  pilot because I've trained pilots for most of my life I've got an insight to learning, teaching and human behaviour and people seem to get confidence from meeting me and hearing me telling the truth in an empathetic way. They respect my experience as an airline captain.

 It's the constant support from each other that eventually gets terrified flyers on to their flights. We pick up a lot of people who have been on other fear of flying courses. And of course anyone heading off for a course who knows there's going to be a flight after it can't be quite as scared of flying as some people here who can hardly bear to come on the site.
Why does the famous hypno therapist succeed? Because his reputation is so strong that people get confidence from him and 'believe' that they have some inner strength that they magically find after his guidance...everyone has that strength...well almost everyone, and if you've got it, the lasting way to keep it is to discover it from your own thoughts actions convictions and experience. This is the best form of learning whether it's the three R's or overcoming a fear of flying. No amount of esoteric mind wandering is going to change the fact that if you fundamentally believe that turbulence is dangerous that under stress it WILL reappear.

If you're climbing Mount Everest in the 'death zone' who would you prefer to thelp Chris Bonnington or a life coach?

Having said all that I'll try to change the date of the course  would that be of interest to you? I hope so because I really want to help you

I've just been reviewing  parts of the site and spotted this. Eventually I asked this guy to leave because whatever I did he seemed to find fault and then suggested I favoured women rather than him. 

I mention this because anyone who wants to overcome their fear has to put in some effort. It's their fear so they need to fix it ... I just try to suggest the best way.
