First Time Flyer? Get The Guide to Your First Flight…

Never been on a plane before? Wonder what to do at an airport? Many of you are scared as you have never been on a plane before and don't know what to expect. This is completely understandable. I remember being excited but VERY nervous before the first time I flew all those years ago. Help is at hand... I have written a mini book called The First Time Flyer Handbook. The book explains what to do, and what is happening from the moment you book your flight, to finding your luggage at your destination. It's a short book, as I have tried to keep the information simple and easy to understand. Of course, if you need questions answered then feel free to contact me at any time. Although I make this site available for free, I have decided to … [Read more...]

The TakeOff Today Program: Recommended Fear of Flying Course

Download TakeOff Today Program

I have mentioned the TakeOff Today Program on numerous occasions, and have always recommended it as a cheaper option if you simply cannot afford to invest in the SOAR Course (my top recommendation for guaranteed fear of flying help). But, I think it would benefit you if I went into a little more detail about WHY I think the TakeOff Today Program is still effective. Firstly, let us discuss what you actually get when you order the program. The main manual is 121 pages long and comes in PDF format (all this means is that it is readable on ANY computer, whether PC, Mac or other). 121 pages seems like a lot of reading, but it's an enjoyable experience. There is no 'fluff' or 'filler', just great advice on overcoming your fear of … [Read more...]

Top Three Online Fear of Flying Help Courses

I created Flying Fear (this website) for YOU – the fearful flyer – a year ago with one main goal, to help as many of you overcome your debilitating fear as possible. Whether it’s email support, or the articles on the site, I hope I’ve contributed the best I can. As regular readers will already know, I am a Flight Attendant and NOT a psychologist. In fact, I have zero training in counselling, or any other form of self help. I just wanted to use my expertise in flying to help out where possible. BUT, the fear of flying can be a complicated phobia which sometimes requires more expertise than I can possibly offer. It’s an irrational fear that can ruin family, social, and work life. Of course, I don’t really need to tell you … [Read more...]

The Virgin ‘Flying Without Fear’ iPhone Application

Virgin's Flying Without Fear course has long been considered one of the best UK courses available, with thousands of successful customers. The course was recently featured in the media when actress Whoopi Goldberg's fear of flying was cured after completing it. Some of you may - however - have been put off by the £199 price tag, but now is your chance to get help from the experts for a fraction of the price. Go on, guess how much...... How about £2.99 (UK) or $4.99 (US)?! This is possible due to the new iPhone/iPod Touch application available from the iTunes Store. Anyone with an iPod will know what I'm talking about here. If you haven't, then I'm sorry but this doesn't apply to you until you do! Founder of Virgin Atlantic Richard … [Read more...]

SOAR Fear of Flying Course Review – Why I Recommend This Course

As I've mentioned a few times on Flying Fear, there are many courses available that offer treatment for your fear of flying - but there is only one that I fully recommend. The first question that you will probably ask yourself is; Do I need to take a fear of flying course? In truth, not all of you will - but anyone who has more than mild or moderate anxiety will find that it's the only way to eliminate the fear. For those of you with mild anxiety, Flying Fear is probably enough to help you enjoy your flight. I have had many visitors who have had their questions answered here or via email, and then happily taken their flight. But, I do not have the expertise to help everybody - especially those with a severe fear of flying phobia. I am … [Read more...]

The Onset Of Flight Anxiety Problems

A person on the SOAR Message Board writes, "Can one person fly for almost twenty-nine years with no turbulence and no fear and then just freak out about it? I was first on the plane at age of 6 months and never even once up until this year worried about flying. I would fall asleep on planes." Until one flight to San Francisco and back, my nerves were really on edge for some reason and they plane shook and its the first time ever I got nervous. A few months later I went with my family to Cozumel Mexico and on the way there the plane shook a bit, I cried, my arms got numb. When I tell people that I never really experienced turbulence up until this year they don't believe me. Now I am convinced that every flight I will take from now on … [Read more...]
