We know how to help you and your families gain the feeling of freedom once again. How to return the sense of control over your life, when YOU, and not the phobia are making decisions.
How to do so that YOU and not the phobia would decide where and when to take a vacation, which work project to sign up for… Which emotions and memories will stay with you as you grow older - the fear that took over or the Victory over them… What is even more important, we know how to help you not to transfer your fears over to your children or repeat some of your parents’ mistakes…
We have all the necessary knowledge, methodologies, as well as new technologies to help you overcome fear of flying. Years of experience and thousands of graduates make “Flying without fear” one of the leading centers in the world for aerophobia treatment.
Aerophobia treatment is a “puzzle” of multiple pieces. It is only when you put them all together, a result can be reached. It is impossible to overcome fear of flying by simply having studied aerodynamics. Or just by seeing a psychologist, but without gaining certain knowledge, say, about turbulence, and not just from some amateur, but from an active pilot.
The problem needs to have a complex approach and cover both, aviation and psychological aspects. A vital role is also played by technologies that allow us to work with the reflex “airplane = fear” and help to stop avoiding flights, even if you were used to doing it for years. We have unique simulators, including a turbulence simulator that has no analogues in the world.
Here are just a few things that we would do together to help you overcome your fear:
Where does this fear come from? I used to fly fine before!
We focus on the roots of your phobia, instead of the conviction that “flying is dangerous”.
Nothing will ever help me, my fear is the most terrifying fear.
You’ve learned to be afraid to fly, which means that you can do the opposite - and learn to be unafraid.
Logically I understand everything, but that doesn’t help.
We identify false assumptions and replace them with the appropriate way of thinking regarding flights, control, fears, and more.
On the airplane I lose control over the situation, If something happens, there are no chances to survive, How can you trust someone you don’t know, But they still fall from the sky, But I can still end up being one of those 0.000001%!
We analyze and correct these false logic chains and dozens more.
I am not afraid that something might happen with the airplane, I am scared of a panic attack on board.
There are 40% of those just like you. You’ll learn how to deal with panic disorder, claustrophobia, fear of fear, suspicion, and other “common friends” of aerophobia.
How can I be calm when there is 10km (6 miles) of abyss beneath us!
Aviation knowledge - how an airplane flies and what holds it up in the air, turbulence, meteorology, human factor, “what will happen if…”, safety systems, and much more. As a result, by the end of the course you would become a mini-expert in aviation.
If I am so terrified, there has to be a reason for that. Perhaps, it is my intuition trying to warn me .
Stop! It is crucial to learn how to separate fears and risks.
I won’t be able to handle such an intense fear! I’ll lose self-control. I’ll feel shame in front of others.
We learn about the mechanisms of fear and panic. What fear is all about, its physiology, hormones, psychological and emotional aspects. We learn to control ourselves, not the airplane.
Air holes, mega-turbulence, and hyper banks.
Where they come from and why they do not exist for pilots. How your vestibular system works and the mistakes it makes.
But something can go wrong!
We learn to control catastrophic thoughts that are typical for most people with the fear of flying. (Imagine that you are inserting a needle underneath your nail. Unpleasant, isn’t it? Yep! What are your sensations caused by? Exactly, your own fantasies. A similar process happens on the airplane. We’ll learn how to stop these thought patterns.)
I don’t understand anything on the airplane and cannot think “rationally”.
That’s right - with an increased amount of adrenalin noone can think logically. You’ll learn various techniques to automatically block fear on a physiological level (hormones included!).
I try not to fly unless it is necessary, I never look outside the window, I always listen to the engine sounds.
We’ll also switch your phobic behavior to an ordinary person’s behavior, who is about to use a regular transport, which airplane is indeed considered to be.
You will get Special recommendations in case you have perfectionism + aerophobia. During the therapy we may also use Virtual reality - flight preparation computer system on the ground. Upon your wish and readiness we can organize an assisted flight together with our pilot-psychologist and fear of flying treatment specialist Alex Gervash.
These and other knowledge, methods and techniques have already helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world to overcome their fear of flying forever. However, there are millions of people more with aerophobia who haven’t taken the treatment course yet. They continue to claim “my case is unique” and “nothing will help me”. It’s only up to you to decide where you want to belong. From our side we will provide all the necessary knowledge and support to guide you along. Ready to start?
