hectic. We ran a courses in Manchester and Gatwick, both of which went actually well. Here is some feedback … Gatwick November 2017 My spouse and I were part of a group of 120souls with varying types of fear and fears. At the end of the course over 97%of us went out having actually flown in an aircraft. We want we had done it years previously, now remaining in our 60 ′ s it has opened the world in our retirement. The course was professionally run in a casual environment with 10 individuals allocated to a group leader who were there to address concerns, and offer peace of mind, Our chap was Brian who was absolutely outstanding having the previous day returned from a journey back from China.The course included a talk about fears, basic duties of the cabin crew and their substantial training, and pilot Captain Dave Mabbett who went through every scenario, and addressed every question, no matter how trivial it was. He was the primary consider my dominating the fear I had with flying. Run by Virgin the course was independently run without any marketing. The most comforting quote of the day( and everyone is different)made by Captain Dave about himself was the most crucial individual on this aircraft was me, because if I’m safe your safe. I would motivate anybody who does fear flying to go on the course you will not regret it everybody is different Manchester November 2017 Dear team, I want to state a big thank you for an excellent course and for assisting me in conquering my fear of flying. I have actually not flown for 34years and in
all that time I have done whatever possible to prevent getting on an aircraft, I have know that earlier or later on I should do something to eliminate my fear and when my partner informed me about your flying without worry course I thought this will ideally be the answer. I went to on Sunday and discovered that there were great deals of others with the very same fears and stress and anxieties and in some method this assured me. I found that the details and the consistent reassurance you offered assisted me as the day advanced. The huge test naturally was the flight and I need to state I was rather worried at this phase, however after the flight I felt a terrific sense of accomplishment and I now feel more comfy about going on a plane and anticipate going on a flight in the future.Thanks once again to you all, you are a great team.

She thinks, it is passing away out and soon will be no more. Her fascinating post
here A few of the team were discussing this extremely thing just recently. Everybody were having a hard time to keep in mind when the last time an aircraft landing had been clapped … Among the team said that on a current flight back from Turkey, only one row of people clap
as they landed. Were they especially impressed with the pilot skills? Or, was it relief to still be alive ?! Not exactly sure why the practice stopped. If nothing else, it was great for pilots to hear somebody praise their work. It takes ability to gently land an airplane. Nowadays, behind the bolted Kevlar doors, the pilots have extremely little contact with passengers. Maybe, we should all restore the clapping to value
these skilled professionals?======= == ======= ===== == === ==== === ====== == =Why don’t you load parachutes rather of life coats on board?This is a question that remains in our book. This question actually shows up quite a bit. Some example answers: Unless you have actually been trained to leap out of airplane, can you think of for how long and comprehensive the safety demo would be to use
them?Would you actually jump out of an airplane and just land anywhere ?!
The safest place to be is on the aircraft with professionals trained to fly
it. There are many back ups and extra capacity built into commercial aviation, you are much more secure with us than any other type of transport.==
