Ground Course Only Seminar* £180


Virgin Atlantic Flying Without Fear ground seminar* £180 including VAT

We have been running fear of flying courses since 1997 and in that time have helped thousands and thousands of people to beat their fears of flying.  From day one, we have aimed to be innovative in the way that we approach all of our courses – we are always looking for ways to improve what we do.  We have a selection of different ways to help you from bespoke 1-1 courses right through to 250 people strong seminars.  And that is not just in the UK either.

Our recent addition to our portfolio is called the ‘ground seminar’ This is a short, punchy seminar held around the UK at a fraction of the price of our adult premium course.

This workshop is for those that want only a short punchy session to help them. Or, maybe a refresher session before you fly. Or, like our first five years, people used to attend the ground seminar and then take a flight when they were ready.

More detail

Richard Conway and Paul Tizzard (co-founders) always start these sessions with a short scene setting and introductions.

Pilot session 

One of our specially selected pilots will spend some time with you going through the technical side of flying. This will equip you with the necessary knowledge to fly with ease in the future. All of our pilot speakers on this workshop have many years of experience working on our adult premium courses and the bespoke 1-1 sessions.

Psych-educational session 

In just over an hour, one of our psychologists, such as Paul Tizzard (co-founder),  will take you through a selection of tried and tested psychological tools and techniques. These will help you in your process of beating your flying fears.
