I have always been fine with flying and even been skydiving in the past, so I was so surprised when suddenly I found myself with a fear of flying. Over the years it has developed but I have never stopped flying, I just never like it. But now, after the easyjet Fearless Flyer course, I feel that I have the knowledge and the tools to get on an airplane and feel comfortable throughout the flight. I now can’t wait for my flight to Australia.
I want to thank you and your team for changing my life. I first completed the easyJet Fearless Flyer course in Nov 2013, after which I took my first ever flight and had a holiday in Majorca with my wife. At the time this was quite a feat for me as I had avoided flying all of my life. Then last year my wife and daughter booked a family holiday to Lanzarote for this summer and as time marched on I began to get a little anxious about the 4 hr plus flight. So late last year, I took up your offer of a flight only refresher course, just to re-enforce the positives from the main course and I am delighted to say I have just returned from a family holiday in Lanzarote. The flights were great and I can't wait to book our next holiday to the sunshine. I've got to say that before I'd heard of easyJet’s Fearless Flyer courses I honestly believed I was destined never to fly. You have changed that for ever.
I just thought I'd write to let you know that 2 weeks after coming on your June Gatwick course, I boarded a flight to Shanghai and had the most amazing holiday with my family. I listened to the MP3 player for most of the 12 hour journey there and back! I couldn't have done it without you guys. Thank you
Completed the course in Belfast early spring and have just returned from a family holiday in Malaga. All techniques used and the MP3 player is amazing. It truly is a life changing experience. If anyone is considering signing up to do the course then do it. I loved the fact it was done in Belfast. Thanks to you all.
Thanks to this fantastic course which I attended in Belfast earlier this year in April. I finally took my wife on our dream honeymoon. We went to New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. It was 5 flights in the space of 2 weeks. Never thought I would ever see America or be able to do so many flights. But thanks to this amazing course I was able to overcome my biggest fear, FLYING and I even enjoyed the flights. We were even seated separately for one of the flights and it was fine. Before this course I would never have been able to do this. Thank you so much for all your help
I did the Fearless Flyer course in 2014. Since then I have done the 'experience flight' twice (very useful) and also flown to France, Holland and Portugal. But last month I did something I never dreamed I would do and that was to fly to America! The thought of the long flight did make me anxious but I remembered all the things that I had learnt on the course and found that it helped me enormously. I have attached a picture of me with my certificate by the harbour in Boston, Ma. Many thanks to your excellent team for making this possible
Before Fearless Flyer I hadn't been on a plane for over 20 years - my parents stopped taking me when I was a teenager as I was so scared. In that time I have been on a great deal of European holidays by boat and train, my wife and I even sailed to America and back ten years ago as I couldn't get on a plane. I tried hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling to no avail - I had accepted I would not fly again. Last year I was dreaming about visiting the US again and happened upon Fearless Flyer on the Internet. Mark called me and talked about the course and how it had worked for so many people - I was still pessimistic but decided to give it a shot. I can honestly say it has now absolutely changed my life and was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The course is great and there are so many other people there who share the same fears it creates an amazing feeling of togetherness and courage. In the past year I have visited Majorca, Barcelona, Jersey and Portugal - and now Florida! This photo is of me by Clearwater beach having had an amazing holiday in the US. I know when I read testimonials in the past I thought 'my fear is different and it can be cured' - it really can and I am proof of it. Thank you to all of the Fearless Flyer team, I thoroughly recommend the course to anyone who is unsure about trying it - you will not regret it.
It's now almost 18 months since I took the fearless flyer course. Have just had my 27th flight since then (Edinburgh to London City) however I wanted to share a photograph of me on my summer holiday this year. In the background is the Victory Monument in Bangkok which I feel is apt. So if I can get there after beating a long time fear of flying then I feel it shows how worthwhile the easyJet Fearless Flyer course is.
I took my first flight since the course at Gatwick all those months ago. I was worried that the good effects of the course wouldn't last. However it was brilliant especially as we had a lot of turbulence on the outward journey. I looked at the staff whose expressions were relaxed even though we were being tossed about and suddenly I realised it was ok. Both take offs and landings were relaxed affairs. No more Valium sandwiches. THANK YOU EASYJET TEAM.
Just back from a trip to Bordeaux. I don't know what magic was worked on the course but I was so calm and confident. Ready for my next trip! Thanks so much to all on the Stansted course 2-3rd May.
Ongoing thanks. I had a wonderful time in Crete – a joy to be re-united with folk (and dogs) I love – and a wonderfully relaxing holiday my first outside the UK for over 50 years. I just wouldn’t have contemplated such a thing six months ago so I am very grateful indeed to you and all involved with the Fearless Flyer course!
FAQ's – Your questions answered
Will the course really help me?
Yes, absolutely. People with a fear of flying will have a variety of concerns that will trigger their fear. That’s why we’ve designed such a comprehensive online fear of flying course featuring an entire section on understanding flight, as well as showing you different techniques to help you control your fear.
Many people often immediately overcome their fear of flying simply once they have fully understood the facts about flying. That’s why easyJet's experienced senior Captain will take you through every aspect of flight and will cover all the topics that might concern you.
And for those who feel their fear is more psychological then you will learn many proven tried and tested techniques that will help you to delete the negative looping mind patterns and reframe your mind so that you will feel totally different about flying.
My fear of flying is actually the fear of not being in control – will your course help with this?
What you might not realise is that a fear of flying can manifest itself in many different ways. For some it is the fear of not being in control or perhaps the fear of heights whereas for others it is the fear of enclosed spaces or the fear of having a panic attack whilst on a flight.
What we’ll help you to understand is that fear is fear and a phobia is a phobia and no matter what that your fear is the process to remove it is exactly the same. Once we teach you these powerful mind tools then you will be able to use them in many other aspects of your life.
Turbulence really triggers my fear – can your course really help me overcome this?
Yes absolutely, this is one of the most common fears so we will therefore explain to you exactly what turbulence is and why it is safe.
It is 100% normal for a plane to experience some movement while in flight and you will learn that turbulence is a similar feeling to driving down a bumpy road in your car. Some roads are smooth – others are bumpy. So at the time of turbulence, the plane is simply on the equivalent of a bumpy road. Our senior easyJet Captain will explain turbulence in great detail during the online course and by the end of it you will understand that turbulence is perfectly normal and safe.
How long is the online course?
The easyJet fearless flyer online course will last approximately 2.5 hours but it is divided up into 16 easy to follow modules, so you can go at your own pace and repeat each module as many times as you wish.

The online course contains all of the material from our standard course, which has been running since 2012 and has a success rate of over 95%.
Is the course suitable for children?
Whilst the course has been tailored to an adult audience we do not believe there is any content that would be inappropriate for children.
However, we would leave it for parents to make their own judgement on this depending on the age of their child.
I’m claustrophobic, will the course help?
Yes, absolutely the techniques can work for claustrophobia or ANY other phobia.
