Welcome to the flight experience™ fear of flying course for adults

In this modern age, air travel is taken for granted by most people. It’s how we get to see and experience wonderful destinations in the far corners of the world or visit relatives and friends in distant lands. Many people have no idea how planes such as the Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet or the Airbus A380, weighing several hundred tonnes, stay in the air at 40,000ft, and travel at up to 1000 kilometres per hour!

For one in four people, fear of flying is so powerful and real that people avoid flying altogether or take anti-anxiety medications (or stiff drinks) to feel confident enough to board the plane.

These people can have vastly different types of flying fears and experience different severities of flying anxiety. Regardless of the type or severity of your flying fear, the treatment principles are the same.

Bulimba Psychology, Aviation Australia, and Flight Experience have teamed up to facilitate the Fear of Flying treatment program. The program is based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) (one of the most effective and evidence-based treatments for anxiety disorders worldwide). What makes our course so successful is the unique combination of independent psychological treatment sessions, an education question-and-answer session with a commercial Airline Pilot and taking a flight with a trained Fear of Flying Instructor in one of our Boeing 737 flight simulators where flight processes and safety measures will be demonstrated. You can even be the pilot!
