Here is a great link on YouTube that will help you understand anxiety. Thank you to Karen Dinmore, one of our fantastic team leaders for providing the link.
Nonsense article in the media below. Here is a snippet of something that was in the press about a BA flight that turned back. All I can say is this...it is complete nonsense! Enough said. Some things in the media you need to read with caution...Thanks to another super team leader Matt Burgess for spotting this one!
Lastly, let's finish with something very positive in the Aviation Herald:
This is a comment that was posted by an attendee that came on our Birmingham course that was struck by lightning on 1st March.
Great way to get over the fear!By Dan B on Tuesday, Mar 3rd 2015 07:25Z
I was on this flight "getting over my anxiety" and to be honest it's probably the best thing that could've happened! Flying on a clear day with no winds would've been nice but wouldn't have been much use when flying in bad weather in the future. The running commentary we had throughout the flight (from a Virgin Atlantic senior captain(in the jump seat!)) was a great help and when we were struck he ever so calmly announced that we'd had a lightning panic. Due to the orientation of BHX the landing was in pretty strong crosswinds which was also a great experience. The only thing that would've made this flight better would've been a go-around! I couldn't have asked for a better flight (if you know what I mean) to help me get over the fear...
