Fear of flying

Thursday, November 14, 2002
If you are scared of flying, you'll love what we've found for you!

Victoria Baxter e-mailed Ask Getaway, saying she desperately wants to go overseas but has a fear of flying.

We are very pleased to tell Victoria that help is close by, and chances are she will board that plane with no butterflies or white knuckles.

For more than 20 years, a group of women pilots have conducted fear of flying courses in conjunction with Qantas.

They cover a whole spectrum of subjects, such as the nuts and bolts of how planes fly. They also give a thorough safety procedures demonstration, plus offer advice from psychologists and extend the chance to experience a flight simulator where pilots practice their take-offs and landings. At the end of the course you will be accompanied by a course member on an interstate flight.

The great thing is the Fear of Flying Clinic has a success rate of over 90 percent!

Clinics are held twice each year in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.
