Flying with confidence

Would you like to visit friends or family in faraway places or go on a dream holiday but your fear of flying is holding you back? Let us help.

Our courses

Do you get anxious when you think about flying, or is the thought of getting on an aircraft just one step too far? We can help you, no matter how severe your fear of flying has become.

Our Flying with Confidence courses*, held in different venues around the world, are run by British Airways pilots and cabin crew supported by a clinical psychologist. During the course, the myths and mysteries of flying are unveiled and you'll find out that you're not unusual or alone. On most courses there will be a short flight at the end of the day so you can practice all the hints, tips and coping mechanisms that you've learned during the day.

We've helped over 50,000 people in the last 30 years and have a 98% success rate based on what our customers tell us. Why don't you give it a try and let us help you conquer your fear of flying too.

There are a variety of courses available:

  • One day Flying with Confidence Primary course
  • Primary Plus course (maximum of 10 people for ground activites)
  • Premium course (maximum of four people)
  • Private course (one to one or company courses)
  • Children's course
