The course is suitable for anyone who flies nervously, whether they are feeling a little anxious or have never flown before and with a success rate of over 95% we encourage anyone wishing to overcome their fear to attend.

Mark Wein, director of easyJet’s Fearless Flyer course, commented:

“Around one in six people are afraid of flying, which prevents many from traveling abroad on holiday, visiting friends and family or even flying for work – and with With international travel back to normal after so long, now is a great opportunity to join so many people who have already overcome their fears through our popular Fearless Flyer course. We are excited to help many more customers on our course over the next few months – the results are life changing.

Jessica Matthews, who participated in the course, said:

“Booking the Fearless Flyer course was the best decision I have ever made. It was my first time on a plane alone and I found the experience exhilarating. I would recommend this course to anyone who hates steal (like me) or who have a particular fear. Fear is a belief! You can do without it.”

Open Flight Experience

For many of us who grew up traveling or spent hours in a metal tube, we all have our own coping mechanisms for flying (be it takeoff, cruise, bumpy skies, and landing ) that we have to deal with (or laugh depending on the situation).

For some people this is a totally alien environment where they have little or no control over the situation, every creak or noise being different for them.

Classes like this help people acclimate to the process of flying, the sounds as well as the experience of the airport and the stress it can cause – and it’s heartening to see that easyJet is organizing these courses updated to show people they are afraid of air travel. can be managed.
