A course to help overcome your fear of flying!
The purpose of this Fear Of Flying Course is to give more information about what happens during air flight, not in a group as with other course providers but one-to-one.
You will have an initial briefing of 60 minutes and then a practical session in the B737 NG Full Motion Flight Simulator for a further 60 minutes for one person and 120 minutes for a two person course.
You are able to bring someone with you for support who is not considered a student. If you decide to share your classroom time with someone else and they wish to be a student also, as up to two people can be part of the course … we would suggest only doing so if you both have similar fears. An additional 30 minutes is available in case your fears differ slightly.
You not only learn what happens every single flight by way of safety checks and the day to day of actual cockpit operation, but you will also experience the sensation of flight without ever leaving the ground!
We aim to put you at ease with aspects of flight that are routine and normal for regular air travellers whether they be the pilot or the passenger.

Fear Of Flying Student
He was very knowledgeable and answered my questions fully, this was great at filling me with confidence so much that I flew several crisis scenarios in the simulator which has really helped to put my mind at ease now. If someone would've told me before the session I would have done this I would never had believed them!
I really feel like he went above and beyond to ensure that no question was left unanswered to help me with my phobia, and his follow up texts are really appreciated as it feels like you don't have to struggle on your own. I am really grateful to Sia for this session and will have no hesitation in recommending friends to go for a session with him.
I am flying tomorrow evening and whilst still not exactly looking forward to the flight, I definitely more calm and confident as a result of the knowledge and experience I gained in the session.
Why choose Full Motion Experience?
Our instructors are all fully qualified commercial and simulator pilots. They bring to you a wealth of knowledge and experience, combined 30 years and over 45,000 hours of flight time in the air.
Flying in one of these full motion flight simulators is as close as you can get to the feel of being in the actual aircraft. Yes, it is more expensive than a fixed base flight simulator but you will also find that it is a completely different experience.
It really is incomparable when you walk up to the simulator, close the door and the steps are retracted to allow the fully hydraulic driven simulator it’s 6 degrees of freedom.
As far as we know, for simulators of this calibre, we are the most reasonable by way of pricing – up to a 20% saving . This isn’t to say that we lack in service, we just believe that overcoming your fears doesn’t need to be as expensive as other places that may be offering it.
Quadrant Systems have given special permission to use this £15 million flight simulator, usually reserved for commercial and military pilot training. We are incredibly pleased to be able to offer experiences in these amazing pieces of flight training. Each simulator is given a rating (Level D) which allows for it to be used for training professional pilots. These simulators are able to simulate all aircraft systems that are accessible from the flight deck which is critical to training … you wouldn’t want a new pilot to practice 10,000ft above your house would you?
Please note – The Fear Of Flying Course will focus on the practical elements of aircraft and flight.
It is NOT to be considered a replacement for psychological or medical treatment. If you believe you would benefit from these methods we urge you to also look into them.
