What we do!
It’s been a tough two 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 (note this is non-refundable), however, your booking can be changed to a later course with 7 days notice.

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.Mary O’Connor
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.
