Course conducted by Full Motion Experience

Minimum 13 years of age
Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

We are not offering this course at the moment. Pleas view the Full Motion course.

The Fear Of Flying Course – Fixed Base Simulator option is for people who have specific concerns related to the aircraft and understanding safety precautions. You will learn about what pilots do every day and how safe air travel is.

The course is one-to-one, includes 1 hour of classroom time and 1 hour in the FIXED BASE B737 Flight Simulator.

The cheaper of the two courses we offer, this simulator doesn’t move but fools you into believing it does with sound effects, vibrations and visual trickery. You may bring someone for support if you feel you need to.

What is included?

Fear Of Flying Course
What happens?

The course starts in the comfortable waiting room that adjoins the simulator.

Your instructor will explain how the course works and will check what YOU would like to cover. The course will very much be tailored your needs.

60 minutes is allocated to talk through your concerns, you will likely find it useful to ask questions about air travel, the aircraft and safety measures. Your instructor though will be forming an idea as to how to sculpt your time in the simulator to be as useful as possible to you.

If you decide to share your classroom time with someone else, as up to two people can be part of the course … we would suggest only doing so if you both have similar fears. Otherwise there may not be enough time to help you both fully.

Next you will be led to the B737 NG FIXED BASE flight simulator.

You will walk into the “aircraft” and see the cabin to the right and the cockpit to the left. The cockpit is a replica of the real thing. At a cost of around £200k this simulator will look very much as you would expect the cockpit of a commercial aircraft.

The time in the simulator is yours so if you wish to have a look around and ask questions before take off … that is fine with us. When you are ready to go though, start-up procedures will begin and you will see exactly what is done to ensure maximum safety.

You have the option to sit behind the pilot/instructor in the cabin, which also looks very much like the real thing. You can also sit in the co-pilot’s chair which will give you a far better view for what is being done to control the aircraft. You have an hour, so if you wish to swap between that is acceptable.

During the 60 minutes in the simulator we like to keep the lines of communication open. Ask questions, explain any concerns to the flight instructor and let them know how you are feeling. If you are confident or have specific conditions that make you uneasy you may want to try them at this point.

As the simulator doesn’t move you may be wondering quite what you will gain from the time inside. The simulator uses visual trickery, sound effects and rumble packs which will fool you into believing that you had been moving. It is no match for a Full Motion Simulator, of course, but as the cheaper option of the two it may be preferable.

You may find that you are feeling comfortable enough to take to the controls yourself … the time in the simulator is yours so swap seats with the instructor if you wish to and they will explain how you can control the aircraft. If you are practically minded you may prefer this approach.

Once the 60 minutes is up it’s back to the waiting room where you have up to 30 minutes to discuss the experience and anything that might have come to mind.

You may have questions pop up after the experience. Not a problem! We are on hand to answer via email or phone. Our track record for helping people is brilliant, please see our testimonials.

In fact, we like to keep in touch and love to hear of your successful flights after the course. If you do have a “moment” where you need additional help in the run up to your flight … our instructors are more than happy to be available to talk to you. We will try our best to not only get you on the flight but have you get as close as possible to enjoying it!

Sitting on a sun bed in sunny Tenerife 😀 Thank you so much for the help, support and advice you gave me. This morning I put on a music track which truly broke me. I realised the anger I have been carrying around with me for 40 years has finally been challenged and the doubt in me is created only by me. You told me I was the problem when we first met. You were spot on. To use the words from the song "I've been travelling a hard road carry my heavy load" Today that heavy load is lighter and the road not so hard thanks to you.

Your Fear Of Flying course was SO helpful! Just completed a short return flight to Geneva (not Florence) with BA!! I needed a drink to set me up for each flight but I managed it ! I kept thinking about your explanations of turbulence and landing procedures and managed to stay calm. Thanks again for your support. Best wishes Christine (Surbiton)

My ‘Fear of flying’ session with Sia last week. Firstly, I feel so fortunate to have had this experience in the simulator as I was absolutely terrified when I arrived. I am probably the worst passenger in the world and I have ran off planes and not boarded on some flights.
