The course

What’s covered in our 1 to 1 Fearless Flying course?

Fear of Flying - Initial Discussion

1. Overview / Initial Discussion

The course is individually tailored to your specific fears. Andy has spent many years researching this debilitating phobia and has over time, developed a variety of techniques to help you combat your fears.

Anything discussed during the course is completely confidential and there is a strict do-not-disturb policy whilst the course is running.

Fear of Flying Flight Simulator

2. Simulator Time

You’ll sit at the controls of a full motion commercial airline flight simulator while Andy talks to you about the aircraft and explains how it all works.

You will fly a real route, working the controls under the expert guidance of your pilot. This is the best way of you seeing, hearing and feeling how a plane flies and is a powerful way of helping you overcome your fears and alarms while flying. You’ll spend about an hour flying the flight simulator.

Fear of Flying Coping Mechanism

3. Coping Mechanisms

In this stage, you will use visualisation techniques and Andy will discuss the most appropriate coping mechanisms to address your specific needs.

At the end of the course, you will be debriefed on your progress and feelings about flying, and can discuss your next steps.

4. Real Flight

At this stage you may not require anything more from us. Some people book more time in the flight simulator, while others want support to experience a real flight.

If you decide to book a flight, Andy will help you with the booking and accompany you 1:1 – but only if this is something you want to do. We will then either make a return flight, or use alternative transport for the return journey. This will allow an in depth discussion about the your flight experience.

Andy talked through my worries and fears and then let me experience the fantastic flight simulator. I learnt everything they do on everyday flights, all the noises, bumps and even turbulence which is my biggest fear. I got to take off, fly and land the plane which really helped me understand what goes on. Because I began to understand it all, I felt more in control. This is a unique course as it is one-to-one basis rather than lots of people sat in a classroom. Afterwards I felt so much better about flying and I’m not dreading my upcoming flight anymore.

I contacted Andy on the day that I was supposed to be on a flight to Tenerife but due to my horrendous fear of flying I just couldn’t do it. Booked a course for a few days later and it is honestly the best thing I have ever done!

My fear was so bad I couldn’t leave the house and had panic attacks days before I was due to fly, so I was a little sceptical as to how this would help me. However, I am amazed at how different I now feel. I am looking into booking a flight to Tenerife very soon and I am actually looking forward to that which is pretty amazing!


I would like to say thank you so much for your time with me. I am now in Wellington, New Zealand having flown to Singapore then Christchurch. I had no fear at all! Amazing! I wouldn’t say I enjoyed the flight, it was quite claustrophobic but the fear of being in the air had gone. Thank you again. The world is now my oyster!

Huge thanks to Andy for an amazing day and for a truly unique, one-to-one experience. The most surprising part for me (being quite reticent) was that before long I was talking about emotions that I had hidden for years! Andy did much more than just listen, he helped me to understand the source of my fears better and how these can then be addressed. He then used this to develop coping mechanisms tailored to my needs.


I was not afraid to say that I was afraid of flying, a fear that had got worse over the years and stopped me from looking forward to my holidays. After a wonderful afternoon with Andy, I now feel a confidence that I have never had before. Armed with the knowledge of how and what makes a plane tick and actually getting to take over the controls, I feel far better equipped to laugh in the face of my anxiety. Thank you to Capt. Andy for this afternoon.
