Fear of Flying Course report

Not open for further replies.


Dec 1, 2003
Hi all

This is my first post here. Many of you will know me from Flyertalk so hi to everyone.

I have always had a fear of flying to a certain extent but did not let it stop me flying. However earlier this year I had to cancel a trip to Europe (sister's wedding) due to panic attacks (principally due to Sept 11. I had not flown at all since that day.)

Anyway I enrolled in the Fearless Flyers course (http://www.fearlessflyers.com.au/ ) which I have just completed yesterday. The course finished with a QANTAS flight Mel-Syd for the day with lunch at Bondi. As you would well be aware it was a fine day and not too bad for flying.

Anyway the course and the day went fine. Although I was nervous flying there were no panic attacks and I coped ok. Most other people doing the course also reported good results.

A number of people contributed their time and expertise to helping the group including a number of women pilots and a Qantas captain. I can't thank them enough for all their help.

I found the course worthwhile and would recommend it to anyone with a fear of flying. The course presenters are genuinely interested to help people with their problems and their results reflect this commitment.

Now i Just have to deal with my second fear. Does anyone know of a fear of Qantas inflight food course?

cheers Peter

PS The name "Open Discussion" for this forum is a little plain. How about a groovy new name - say "Milesbuzz'? :)
