A COURSE to help aerophobics overcome their fear of flying is set to take place in Glasgow this weekend.

EasyJet will be bringing its “Fearless Flyer” course back to the city this weekend to help passengers with a fear of flying “take control and overcome” it.

Since 2012, the airline firm says more than 11,000 phobics have taken to the skies after completing the course.

It is split into three main parts, including a virtual ground course, a pre-flight one-hour ‘Meet the Team’ online Zoom session and a special one-hour experience flight.

The experience flight will take off from Glasgow Airport on Saturday, November 4.

Captain Chris Foster, Fearless Flyer Lead Pilot at easyJet, said: “We’re delighted to have relaunched our renowned Fearless Flyer course at Glasgow.

“The course is suitable for anyone who is a nervous flyer, whether they experience slight anxiety or whether they have never flown before and with a success rate of more than 95%, we would encourage anyone wishing to overcome their fear to take part.”

Mark Wein, easyJet’s Fearless Flyer Course director added: “Around one in six people have a fear of flying, stopping many from travelling abroad on holiday, visiting friends and family or even flying for work, so why wait to join so many who have already overcome their fears through our renowned Fearless Flyer course?

“We’re excited to help many more people get flying fearlessly on our courses over the coming months – the results are truly life-changing.”
