New style course option released

Ground Course Only Seminar*


Virgin Atlantic Flying Without Fear ground seminar* £120 including VAT

We have been running fear of flying courses since 1997 and in that time have helped thousands and thousands of people to beat their fears of flying.  From day one, we have been innovative in the way that we approach all of our courses – we are always looking for ways to improve what we do.  We have a selection of different ways to help you from bespoke 1-1 courses right through to 250 people strong seminars.  And that is not just in the UK either.

Our recent addition to our portfolio is called the ‘ground seminar’ This is a short, punchy seminar held around the UK at a fraction of the price of our adult premium course. 

This workshop is for those that want only a short punchy session to help them. Or, maybe a refresher session before you fly. Or, like our first five years, people used to attend the ground seminar and then take a flight when they were ready.

Pilot session 

One of our specially selected pilots will spend some time with you going through the technical side of flying. This will equip you with the necessary knowledge to fly with ease in the future. All of our pilot speakers on this workshop have many years of experience working on our adult premium courses and the bespoke 1-1 sessions. 

Psychologist session – Howard Cooper

In just over an hour, one of our psychologists will take you through a selection of tried and tested psychological tools and techniques. These will help you in your process of beating your flying fears.



How do I chose which fear of flying seminar will suit me best?

1-1 bespoke course. This course is completely tailored to what you need and is written around you and what you want. You will have, as a minimum, a pilot, psychologist, cabin crew trainer with you for the whole day. This bespoke course has been run internationally and due to the set up and organisation, is by far the most expensive option.
