British Airways’ Flying with Confidence course is returning to Dubai, in a bid to make the flight experience comfortable for those with a fear of flight.
Taking place on Saturday March 14, 2015 at The Capital Club in DIFC, the one day course, which by the end of 2015 will have helped more than 50,000 people overcome their flying phobias, will be hosted by British Airways captain and course instructor, Steve Allright.
Amongst the topics tackled are how an aircraft operates, turbulence and other technical aspects of flying. Participants will also receive advice from a specialised phobia counsellor that includes breathing and relaxation techniques.
“After speaking to participants during the two sessions in 2014, it seems that they find long-haul or transatlantic flights more difficult to handle than short-haul flights,” asserted captain Allright.
“With so many different nationalities living in the UAE, at some point most people are going to have to take a flight home or on holiday or for a business meeting and this is when anxiety can arise,” he added.
Participants can book their place online at www.flyingwithconfidence.com. In addition to tackling their fear of flying, all course participants will qualify for a 10 per cent discount on any British Airways flight in any cabin class.
