Nervous Flyer? Fly with Confidence Course

Afraid of Flying?

From time to time various airlines have provided fear of flying courses – if you live in the United Kingdom and have a fear of flying, British Airways has just the answer for you, a “Flying With Confidence” course, which will next be held at London Gatwick (LGW) Airport on March 24.

Studies have indicated nearly 25 per cent of all people have a fear of flying; in past years, this British Airways course has helped more than 45,000 people.

The course lasts one day and is held at several UK airports including Gatwick, Heathrow, Glascow, and Edinburgh.

Classes start with sessions on the ground with British Airways pilots who explain the technical side of flying and how aircraft operate.  Ever hear the “barking dog” when you’re sitting near the wings of an Airbus A320?  That “barking dog” is actually the Power Transfer Unit for the flaps of the aircraft.  Flying is by far the safest way to travel.

Clinical psychologists also provide expert advice on relaxation techniques, and how best to deal with anxiety and feelings of panic.  The day builds towards a real 45 minute flight on a British Airways Airbus 319 aircraft with British Airways crew – where customers can put the theory into practice.

British Airways Captain Julian Price, from Haslemere in Surrey, who is flying the aircraft on Saturday, said: “It’s great to be able to share my love of flying and help our customers so they can fly with confidence and go on a holiday of a lifetime or visit friends and family abroad.”

Customers can book, find out more and see the BA Flying with Confidence by visiting – which includes a YouTube Video.

The next courses available are taking place at London-Gatwick on March 24, Edinburgh on April 14 and London-Heathrow on May 26, 2012.

Aside from address the fear of flying, course participants will receive a 10% discount off future British Airways flight.
