We've added extra dates

Our next available dates are  October 16th, November 20th & December 11th.

We’ve been doing this a long time.

Why it works!

For one in four of us, the idea of getting on an aircraft is filled with anxiety and fear. A fear of flying is often misunderstood, especially when no amount of logic and statistics on how safe flight makes any difference.
Our one-day course, based on over 20 years of experience by our founder Michael Comyn could have all the answers to get you back in the air. We don’t use hypnosis, breathing exercises or “elastic bands” (if you know – you know)!

The course runs from 10.00 am to 4:30 pm, and we provide you with a light lunch during the day.

WHy our course is different!

Our Simulator Partners

We use a day full of information and experiences that put you back in control. By the end of the day, you will know more than the average passenger. We’ll also take you into a state-of-the-art flight simulator and let you experience and learn the noises and sensations that often trigger anxiety.
Don’t worry; even though the simulators are used for emergency training, we won’t be making you more scared than you already are. We leave the emergencies to the professionals. You will, however, get the perfect opportunity to have all your questions on weather, flights, sounds and sensations answered by our expert team.
We partner with Simtech Aviation at their state-of-the-art Dublin Airport Logistics Park facility.

There are two options – the Main Seminar is the most popular. Our courses are suitable for anyone aged 16 or older.

We’ve added more dates for the highly successful Fly Fearless Course – developed over 20 years; this programme has a success rate of over 92% and helps you overcome anxiety associated with flying. There are no hypnosis sessions, relaxation exercises or deep breathing. Instead, our professional crew work to rebuild your trust and knowledge of the sights, sounds and sensations of flying. You’ll learn about the mysteries of turbulence and become an expert at how to feel in control of your emotions when you fly.

If you’re going on holiday or a business trip, it shouldn’t take so much emotional energy!

A psychology student evaluated our course as part of her thesis. During that time, she followed and monitored the participants’ progress and interviewed them by questionnaire before and after the Fly Fearless Seminar.

This quasi-experimental survey study aimed to explore the effects of a multi-component fear of flying program on individuals who fear flying. The purposive sample of seventeen participants comprised five men (29.4%) and twelve women (70.6%).

This within-group study measured participants’ flying anxiety, self-efficacy and locus of control. Each participant completed a questionnaire before the intervention and immediately after. The questionnaire consisted of three measures, Flight Anxiety Situations, Generalised Self-efficacy Scale and Locus of Control Scale.

The analysis showed a significant reduction in flying anxiety and a significant increase in self-efficacy but no increase in the locus of control. Thus proving that a multi-component fear of flying program positively affects one’s flying anxiety and self-efficacy.

If you are of an estimated one in 10 of us, who feels a morbid sense of fear around flying. Some experts even claim that one in six will feel anxiety about being in an aeroplane at some stage; this course can provide you with the tools to feel more in control.

What Our Clients Say

We are always delighted to hear back from our course participants who have over the last 13 years shared their delight at being back in the air and flying without fear.

I did the course last year, and I had to fly in January, and it was the best flight I have ever been on. Before I did the path, I was a wreck in all sense of the term; the flight in January I did was a pleasure. I drank my tea, read my magazine and slept for 1 hour to my shock. I enjoy flying now and can’t wait for my flight in 3 weeks.

Gemma Levy

Fantastic day, thanks to Mike, Paul and Karl, my husband Michael,who attended only yesterday got on his 1st ever plane last night, he was calm, remembered maths technique while waiting to take off, he was amazing, thank you so much guys, you really have changed our lives now, keep doing what you do , many thanks 

Sharon and Michael Monaghan

An excellent and informative course. Michael, Robbie & Karl were so calm and efficient. They acknowledged our fears but give concise and reasonable answers to them. It was great to understand the plane and the different noises associated with different things that happen during the flight that often cause me to worry.
I’d highly recommend this course to anyone that experiences anxiety when flying!!

Sinéad McGinley

I am sorry I didn’t take this course with Fly Fearless before now! The content and experience in the simulator was invaluable in helping me address my concerns. Michael was a fantastic instructor and got to the heart of my concern very quickly enabling me to address it. Thank you for all your support and advice. I look forward to my next flight and putting in to practice what you taught me.

Compliments are nice!

I took the FlyFearless course on June 12th last. I wanted to write to let you and the team know how I’ve been getting on.

Since I took the course, I’ve been on three return flights! One long haul (Portland, Oregon [9.5 hours!!!]) and two short hauls (London and Lisbon). I feel like my old self. I can’t believe it; I’ve come to enjoy the sensations of flying again!
It helped me to learn about the technical aspects of flying. The noises, the bells, the degrees at which the pilot steers the plane, why the seatbelt sign goes on and why the pilot might not make many announcements, what turbulence is and how to go with the bounce rather than grip the armrest all stressed out…

The psychological aspect of the course was also insightful and helped me spot what my mind does to influence my emotions negatively and vice versa. I can get out of that miserable loop quicker these days, and it’s down to the stuff I learned in your course. That, along with ensuring I’m not tired, hungry, or angry before takeoff.

Being given these details by industry experts has calmed down the noise in my brain during flights. I’m so thankful for it.
I also love looking at Flightradar24 and Turbli to gather information on my flight path. Seeing how many planes are in the sky right now and how scheduled and safe everything is such a comfort.

So I’m writing this to say thanks so so so much! I never thought I’d get close to being how I used to be on flights – but it’s happening. I nearly fell asleep on my last one instead of being uncomfortably hyper-alert.
