easyJet is bringing back its popular Fearless Flyer course to help conquer the fear of flying in less than 3 hours.
Aerophobia, or ‘fear of flying’, is more common than we think. Many people experience nervousness or anxiety when they get on a plane. The crowded airplane cabins, possible turbulence, and the unpleasant sensation of taking off and landing are certainly some of the reasons behind aerophobia. Other people experience an extreme sense of panic and completely avoid flying.
To help people conquer aerophobia, easyJet is bringing back its Fearless Flyer course.
The course is suitable for anyone who is a nervous flyer, whether they experience slight anxiety or whether they have never flown before and with a success rate of more than 95%, we would encourage anyone wishing to overcome their fear to take part.Captain Chris Foster, Fearless Flyer Lead Pilot at easyJet
Customers now have a choice of nine airports across the UK to book their experience flight: Manchester, London Luton, London Gatwick, Bristol, Belfast International, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, and Birmingham.

The course features a new virtual element and is divided into three main parts:
- A virtual ground course, where customers get familiar with the sounds and sensations they feel onboard an aircraft and learn ways to manage their nerves.
- A pre-flight one-hour ‘Meet the Team’ online Zoom session, where participants will be walked through the airport experience and what to expect.
- A one-hour experience flight from the course airport, where customers put what they have learned into practice.
Additionally, easyJet is also offering a VIP course that includes extra benefits such as a dedicated Captain who guides customers through the experience flight day, a private video call with a pilot and the Fearless Flyer team, and much more.
Over the last 10 years, more than 10,000 phobics have conquered their fear thanks to the Fearless Flyer course. Today, it continues to be one of the best-priced aerophobia courses offered in the UK.
