Our Experienced Team
There are four of us here to help you on the course.
Founder and Managing Director
Michael started Fly Fearless in 2009 using his knowledge of Stress and Anxiety management and his experience as a Crew Resource Trainer and Pilot. He designed this course which has been taken by over 3,000 people in 12 years. We like to update the course every year and you are welcome to come back and take the course anytime for a discounted rate.
Robbie has over 30 years of experience in the airline industry as Cabin Crew and in Customer Service positions. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the course having spent years dealing with nervous and anxious passengers in his role as a senior cabin crew member and as a cabin manager.
What we do!
It’s been a tough few years and with limited travel the idea of getting back in the air is harder for some than it used to be. We’ve redesigned the course to take into account the effects of the pandemic of air travel and how you might be feeling.
According to a survey by a leading airline, only 40% of passengers on board an aircraft feel comfortable while the other 60% experience mild discomfort, anxiety or even panic feelings.
This one day course is for you if…you are afraid to fly, you used to fly once, now it’s a trial when you do or you just can’t bear to go at all. If you do get away you are dreading coming back and your trip is ruined by worry weeks in advance.
We have helped over 3,000 people in the last twelve years with a 92% success rate. You can take our course and come back and take the course again or join us for a live online refresher course in the weeks before you fly.
Please note this course is educational and does not constitute therapy or treatment.
The purpose of this course is not to treat extreme forms of general anxiety but to assist healthy individuals to reach their goals to reduce their fear and to gain an insight into aviation information for the purposes of anxiety management.
The course also teaches a number of techniques that have been demonstrated to help manage or reduce anxiety specifically related to air travel. It is recommended if you are receiving treatment for anxiety other than that related to air travel that you discuss your intention to take this educational programme with your primary care physician or therapist.
We have a new contact number in the Republic of Ireland call 086 2561729 – remember you book online.
Course Fee and simulator are €245, this includes a light lunch.
You can pay the balance on arrival on the day –a €90 deposit secures your place , however, your booking can be changed to a later course with 7 days notice.
Course runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm and free parking is available at Simtech Aviation on a first come first served basis.
Worried about turbulence
Over the years of presenting this course, turbulence seems to be the biggest trigger of anxiety. While it’s easy for us to say it’s nothing to worry about we take our time on the course to explain everything you need to know to feel safer and mor calm in rough air. There is an excellent website www.turbli.com that we can recommend where you can track turbulence for your next flight but remember because it may predict bumpy air that is no reason for you to stay at home. Join us on the course and we will explain it all.Turbuli

What Our Fearless Fliers Say
The Fly Fearless course is brilliant. I did the course at the start of December in Dublin, and I am now sitting in Australia planning my New Years Eve. Thank you for restoring my confidence in flying.
An excellent and informative course. Michael, Robbie & Karl were so calm and efficient. They acknowledged our fears but give concise and reasonably answers to them. It was great to get an understanding of 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 experience anxiety when flying!!
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 course I was a wreck in all sense of the terms, 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 !
I didn’t fly for ten years and took my first flight when I was 23 to Portugal with Michael’s help. I took the course twice, the second time as a refresher-it’s brilliant. Just back from my seven-month break travelling Asia and Australia. I would highly recommend this course to anyone with a fear of flying or turbulence.
I participated in this course last summer. I’ve just come back from my brother’s wedding in America, and I was on six planes in less than three weeks. This was something that would have been unimaginable less than two years ago. All thanks to the knowledge and coping techniques instilled in me from this course. Thanks again!
I just want to thank you and Karl for such an excellent course and for all the advice and tips. My sister, Sinéad and I absolutely loved it and really enjoyed the day. You’ll definitely see us on a refresher course soon.
Absolutely fabulous day at the Fly Fearless course. I had doubts that it would work due to the severity of my fear however, what a fabulous course and extremely knowledgeable hosts. I don’t want to give anything away I would say do the course if you have a fear. I promise you will be surprised at how you feel when you leave. Thank you so much Michael, Robert and Steven.
It has to given me a new perspective on flying and hopefully the confidence to fulfill my dream . If it works for me I’ll let you know.
Fantastic course given by Michael and Karl, boosting confidence for flying, worries about turbulence and various noises explained in detail, well worth doing, very relaxing course, Thank ye both again.
After doing the Flyfearless course and also using the tools/podcasts available via the fly fearless website (especially the listen before you fly virtual flight ) I flew to Lanzarote and back and really enjoyed the flight! I shocked myself at how calm I was. My biggest thing was a takeoff, I would normally hide my head and panic, but I was able to look out the window and enjoy it ( my boyfriend was so shocked at the difference between now and the last time I flew)
I could ramble on all day about how happy I am I did the course, but it really is a life-changing course. I really used to dread the thought of going on a plane but now I am planning more trips.
As you say once you have the knowledge and understanding of what’s going on when things don’t feel as scary anymore.
Thank you so much.
Keep doing what you are doing because it’s great
