Conquering fear of flying

Britain’s smallest airline is to offer a free fear of flying course.

The Blue Islands Freedom to Fly session is open to the first 20 Channel Islands natives to apply, and you don't have to reside in the islands to qualify.

Blue Islands CEO Rob Veron said: “Previous courses in Guernsey and Jersey have been hugely over-subscribed, indicating many Channel Islanders have a very real and debilitating aversion to flying, so we are delighted to offer this again.

“The courses have changed the lives of many islanders and we have had amazing feedback, including someone who was able to travel see family in Canada for the first time in years and others for whom it meant they were simply able to get on a plane.”

This year’s two-day course is at Guernsey Airport on 14-15 March, delivered by Blue Islands’ flight training team and behavioural change coach Mo Harford-Bury. Attendees spend one day in the classroom followed by an experience flight on day two.

Veron added “Fear of flying can have an adverse effect on peoples’ lives to a point where they are not able to enjoy experiences that others take for granted. We’re out to change that.”

For more information and to apply, go to the website below. Closing date is 9 February.
