Fear of flying seminar

Fear of flying seminar

Are you one of those people for whom flying is not a pleasure but is more of a worrying experience, or even an ordeal? You’re not alone. Fear of flying is often the result of a formative earlier experience (such as a particularly turbulent flight); and in some cases it seems to get worse and worse, until the sufferer gives up air travel altogether. It’s a fear that can be conquered, though, as has been shown by both studies into the phenomenon and the success rates we’ve achieved at Swiss AviationTraining with our weekend “fear of flying” seminars.

Seminar venue/language

The weekend seminars are held in German at Zurich airport (Kloten). There are 6-12 particpants per seminar. The seminar fee is CHF 1200 including meals, seminar documentation and flight. The seminar is led by Bettina Schindler, psychologist FSP, in co-operation with Swiss International Air Lines, Edelweiss Air and Swiss AviationTraining. Interested parties, who would like to attend a French or English seminar, have the opportunity to participate in a seminar in Geneva. More details  on www.volersanspeur.com
