“Captain Keith, you HAVE changed my life and even though I don’t plan on travelling by air in the immediate future, I will stay posted to this site for your fantastic support and advice. xoxoxoxoxo Be well and happy flying!”
“Just wanted to say thank you and also say how brilliant your course is and just wanted let you know I went to Heathrow for the day on the Sunday after your course and next week I fly to Barcelona”
“What sets this Fear of Flying course apart from others on offer is the small group size, in the great setting of an aircraft cabin. And, being able to receive one to one attention from an experienced and understanding pilot, I was able to face my anxieties without having to actually fly. I would not hesitate to recommend this course” June R, 2009
“I attended your course! Last weekend I put it to the test and flew to Spain and back! I did my homework for two weeks before – listening to the tapes and watching the DVDs. I was expecting to take some fear along with me, but to my surprise I found that I had gone from an 8 out of 10, where 10 is paralysed with fear, to a 2 out of 10” May 2012
“Hi Keith, Just wanted to let you know that I’ve been to Chile; I’m now back home.I had a lovely time ; I’ve got to say that I’m so pleased that I attended your course. It was really helpful, I wasn’t as anxious as I thought I was going to be. I had a few turbulence, but I found that I put my concerns to the back of my mind rather than having them to the fore front of my mind.”
So…where do I begin? So both flights were fairly turbulent in my eyes. No more than, say, 5-10 mins of what I consider to be smooth. But, I progressed definitely. 100% certain of that.
My fear “ended earlier” than it has done on any previous flight I can remember I.e. On the way out, the fear almost completely disappeared after about 60% of the flights duration and I even went to the toilet when it was a little bumpy. Interestingly, I did question in my own mind “why doesn’t the pilot just ascend a few thousand more feet to get out of this high cloud” and I actually came up with the own answer in my head which is a first, for definite. It was answering my own question but it was a “Keith” response! “Because it’s not dangerous”!
The other achievement was not immediately looking up to see if the seatbelt sign had been switched on when hearing the beeps in the cabin. I left it 20 seconds before doing so (rather than an immediate glance up to see if I needed to strap myself in tightly!). Another achievement was relying less on looking out the window to remind my brain that we weren’t falling during the little bumps. I still needed to from time to time but less so and at one point I closed the window shutter to help with that.
I had an exercise book to jot down thoughts/flight diary etc. and focus attention etc.
I did have a few elastic band snaps on the flight out but that was ok and all part of the process I guess.
Way back was a little more bumpy but was quite calm at the airport and even getting on the plane and taxiing. Seatbelt sign came on for 10 mins or so at cruising and that was a challenge but I did my breathing and used the window view to assist. Didn’t get anywhere near full panic mode but it was a challenge.
So, as I write this I am thinking that the next time I need to go to Scotland for work I may suggest flying instead of what I normally do which is get the train! August 2015
