Flight Experience™, in cooperation with Psychologists and Airline Pilots, have developed a structured course to help people overcome their fear of flying.
After a brief telephone conversation with our Psychologist (at no cost) it will be determined whether or not we can help. From this discussion you can decide if you wish to proceed.
Clients can elect to enrol in either an Individual or Group Course.
What makes our course different? We help you to think differently.
In this modern age, air travel is taken for granted by most people. It’s how we get to see and experience wonderful destinations in the far corners of the world or visit relatives and friends in distant lands. Many people have no idea how planes such as the Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet or the Airbus A380, weighing several hundred tonnes, stay aloft at 40,000ft and travel at up to 1000 kilometres per hour!
However, for about one in four people, their fear of flying is so powerful and real that they cannot push aside their concerns. They avoid flying altogether or take anti-anxiety medications (or stiff drinks) to feel confident enough to board the plane!
These people can have vastly different types of flying fears and experience different severities of flying anxiety. Regardless of the type or severity of your flying fear, the treatment principles are the same.
Our Fear of Flying Treatment Course is based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) which is the gold standard treatment for anxiety disorders worldwide. What makes our course so successful is the unique combination of independent Psychological Treatment Sessions, an education question-and-answer session with a commercial Airline Pilot and taking a flight with a trained Fear of Flying Instructor in one of our Boeing 737 flight simulators where flight processes and safety measures will be demonstrated. You can even be the pilot!
We are the only course in Australia that offers an exposure session in a real aircraft training simulator. Get talked through a real-to-life flight by a trained commercial pilot. Witness first hand how pilots deal with common scenarios and commonly misunderstood ‘emergencies’ and ‘non-normal’ situations.
