You’ll learn about how some of the causes of fear of flying, and why flying anxieties are so tough to control. Then you will learn a step-by-step approach to flying comfortably.

How this self-help program was created. I had the opportunity to design the first national program for the fearful flier (sponsored by American Airlines). This program is based on that successful seminar and on my years of experience working with people desiring to fly comfortably again. We have also developed a take-home course for those who are afraid to fly, called Achieving Comfortable Flight.

Fear of Flying Self-Help Program
You may not be able to pinpoint when your anxiety about flying began. Many people, though, can identify at least one of four different circumstances that contributed to their first problems with flying.
Even though one out of every six adult Americans is afraid of flying, a very small percentage seek out help for their fears. For those who do confront their worries and symptoms, the task of getting more comfortable often takes significant encouragement and an extra dose of effort. Here are some of the reasons why.
If you are afraid to fly, there are a number of steps you can take to overcome this fear. Your very first step needs to be motivation: facing anxiety is indeed uncomfortable, so you need to become determined to choose air travel as the safest, easiest, quickest way to reach those far-away destinations.
Safety is a concern of everyone who flies or contemplates it. I can provide you with volumes of information about the attention to safety given by the airline industry. No other form of transportation is as scrutinized, investigated and monitored as commercial aviation.
