How to overcome the fear of flying – Guaranteed

How to overcome the fear of flyingIf you have been plagued by your fears and dream of being able to board a plane feeling relaxed, without all those symptoms of panic and anxiety and want to know how to overcome the fear of flying, once and for all, then taking a fear of flying course will help you achieve that dream.

An organisation that has helped thousands of others to conquer their fear of flying through various courses, personal consultation and therapy is SOAR.

SOAR was originally set up in 1982 by Captain Tom Bunn, who is an airline captain and licensed therapist. Also working with SOAR is Lisa Hauptner, a licensed therapist and certified addictions counsellor. Their aim is to provide the most effective help possible and offer a 100% success guarantee with their full program.

 

Why you need a fear of flying course

How to overcome the fear of flying - panic buttonFor many people who are afraid to fly, even the thought of flying can bring on anxiety but actually being on an air plane in flight can induce feelings of panic. They are stuck on the plane high above the earth with no way out, the destination airport miles away and they know they must endure this torture for hours more before they can escape. Of course exiting the plane at their destination immediately relieves the panic feelings.

So why do some people fly in comfort, quite unperturbed by any part of the flight, including take off, landing and turbulence? They regulate their stress levels automatically and unconsciously and remain in control. Fully developed circuitry in their brains allows them to do this, but for many who experience the fear and panic the circuitry has not been fully developed, meaning they feel they have lost control. As you can’t physically leave the plane once it is airborne the only way out is psychologically putting the flight out of mind and this is really tough if the plane drops in the sky or a particularly rough patch of turbulence is encountered.

 

The answer to fear of flying

How to overcome the fear of flying - aircraft cockpitThere is an answer though to your feelings of loss of control and panic, which is to develop one’s ability to control feelings automatically, a control then applied directly to flying.

The SOAR program explains how a plane flies, what flying is about and how well controlled it is. Then through a step-by-step process they train your mind to control your feelings unconsciously and automatically. Lastly, they include a counselling session to ensure the control process is properly embedded. Voila!! You should now be able to fly panic free as others do.

 

The Courses


How to overcome the fear of flying - aircraft cabinThe SOAR Fear of Flying course has two program levels. Both contain the same set of 11 DVDs and ‘Take Me Along’ is included free, but they have differing lengths of personal counselling period with Captain Tom. The cheaper package comes with 30 minutes counselling and no guarantee, while the full package includes two 1 hour counselling sessions plus a full money back guarantee. Both have unlimited access to the weekly group counselling session.

Listed below are what’s included in each program and how the 11 DVDs are split into 4 sections:

 

SOAR Program

  • Sections 1 to 4 of SOAR Fear of Flying Program (11 DVDs – see below)
  • 30 minutes counselling with Captain Tom
  • “Take Me Along” included FREE (see below)
  • Unlimited access to the weekly group counselling session

 

Guaranteed SOAR Program

The Guaranteed SOAR program is effective even if you suffer from extremely bad fear of flying. To stop your feelings of panic, fear, anxiety and claustrophobia before they begin, the Guaranteed SOAR program will teach you how to train your mind to not react when you fly. The presence of high levels of stress hormones cause these feelings and the part of the brain responsible for triggering the hormones can be trained not to react, so then you can fly with hugely reduced stress levels.

Free video

This FREE VIDEO is available on the SOAR website. It features Captain Tom explaining what is included in the programs, what you can expect, what you will learn and how the SOAR programs can help you get over fear of flying. There are also a number of other short videos you can watch on the website. If your fear of flying is mild the videos along with the FREE HELP may be all you need.

 

Take Me Along

The “Take Me Along” video clips should be loaded onto a portable device, such as a smartphone, tablet or ipod that you take on the flight with you. In the video clips Captain Tom explains the following:

  • Everything you hear and feel as it’s happening so you’ll know everything is OK.
  • Help with anxiety before flight
  • Help to stay calm during check in
  • Help to relax in the departure lounge
  • Watch what pilots do during takeoff
  • Turbulence!! not a problem
  • How signals from the runway bring the plane to the perfect landing spot

The video clips mean you never need fly alone again!!

 

How The SOAR Program Works

The videos will teach you:

  • How flying works to alleviate concerns regarding the safety of flying.
  • You’ll come to know the normal noises and motions of flight so you can recognise them.
  • The individual counselling sessions with Captain Tom will make sure the automatic controls you have learned are established in your mind to stop those feelings of fear and panic from happening.

  1. Firstly, taking a course to overcome fear wouldn’t be an option but now I see why it’s a solution encountering it with ease.

    Well, anything relates to fear is always a psychological thing. Watching films where something happened inside a plane or whether it lands safely or not?

    I must say, it’s nice to have different range of courses for flexibility, matching difference needs of buyers. Well done for informing, Neil!

    Thanks, buddy!

    • Hi Tar,

      You are right, fear is a psychological condition and varies from person to person. The range of courses allow for this with some people only needing minor help while others require the full course with one to one sessions to overcome their fear.

      Thanks

  2. What a clever niche.

    I have known so many people in my life that suffer from a fear of flying.

    Your site is so well set out and comprehensive that anyone that suffers from this condition will find plenty to read and more than enough guidance on how to overcome the fear.

    You have well written, easy to read relevant content on you pages.

  3. Hey There

    Great article by the way, I love how your personality shines through your content, not easy to do but you nailed it, good job

    This whole site and the post here is something i would never have thought of great stuff. How long is each section within that dvd set you are offering? Was just wondering because my flight to Costa Rica is in a few days and probably wont have much time to watch it.

    One of my friends was trying to find info on this yesterday, I will share this article with her she will be happy.

    Thank you

    • Hi Jack,

      Thanks so much for your nice comments! 🙂

      If you take a look at ‘The Short Courses’ section in the post – the ‘Rapid Relief – Flying tomorrow or the next day’ short course is 18 videos on 4 DVDs with a total viewing time of 3:04 hours. Alternatively if you have a little longer the other short course is 48 videos over 6 DVDs with a total viewing time of 4:36 hours. Both include a free 30 minute counselling session with Captain Tom and the main parts of the bigger courses. Either of the short courses would be a big help to you and your friend if you are flying soon and have problems with flying.

      Thanks

      Neil

  4. Hi Neil!

    Okay first of all, I had no idea there was an actual course on the fear of flying, WHAAAAT?! I do think that’s great but are there other courses for other fears like the fear of heights? Because I’m a huge fag when it comes to heights.. Or maybe the fear of flying course has a little bit of that as well?? I will definitely give it a look. Thanks for creating this, many people will find this valuable, I just know it . (:

    • Hi Grln,

      The fear of flying programs that are run by SOAR contain a large element of psychology and control of anxiety which help you remain in control when flying. You should easily be able to adapt those same principles to get over a fear of heights. If you do end up taking one of the programs you get personal counselling session(s) with Captain Tom Bunn so you could talk to him about this.

      Thanks

      Neil
