How does your course work?
Do the effects last?
Do other people have fears like mine?
The emails below answer these questions however, this blog is not a self promotion exercise despite the lovely feedback below.
We want to say this. You are normal. If you have a fear of flying, you learned it at some point in your life - you have got into unhelpful thinking habits. You were not born that way. It is never too late to learn something new - to learn some new habits.
The list of emails received in one day is fabulous. We sent the newsletter out to around 5000 people and these emails came back straight away. See below with some of our comments in red underneath:
Just wanted to let you know I went to New York and had a fantastic time, I even proposed to my girlfriend and she said yes!
Can't thank yourself and the Virgin flying without fear team enough. As soon as I get to the airport, get on the plane, take off, cruise and land I'm constantly reminded of the course and how safe flying is. I learnt so much that day and for that I'm so grateful. I felt so calm on the flight both ways. Thank you for your email before I went.
Hope the course is continuing to help people like it did me as about 5 years ago I wouldn't have even entertained the idea of going to an airport, now I can't wait to see the world.
Thanks again and I always enjoy reading the flying without fear newsletters that get sent to me.
A lot of men write to us worried that the course will be 'full of women' and they will not feel comfortable about attending. Fear of flying affects all ages and both genders.
Some will say to us during the day or even straight after the course, 'I am not sure I feel differently yet.' This is a good example of how that is not necessarily important. We are loathe to use the word 'cured' except in irony as it puts a nervous flyer under so much pressure to feel completely different. Is that realistic? Well, for some yes. Our view is that significant incremental change is completely realistic and achievable.
Hello, would just to say thank you to everyone in the Fear of Flying course I was on, since I did the fear of flying course I have flown four times, still a bit nervous but before I came to you even the thought of flying would put me in a panic attack, I am doing my first transatlantic flight with Virgin to Fort Lauderdale on the 28th March then flying home on the 8th April, and am actually looking forward to it in a strange way.
It just goes to show... it is never too late to learn something new.
