The Full Motion Fear of Flying Course
In the full motion fear of flying course we will teach you what pilots do everyday and more information into how safe aircraft are.
What does full motion mean?
Unlike our fixed base option, this simulator most definitely feels like it leaves the ground! With 6 degrees of freedom on hydraulic legs we are able to replicate all of the sensations involved in normal airline flight thanks to the full motion flight simulators at Quadrant Systems, Burgess Hill.
These machines can generate more turbulence than you will ever experience in normal air flight … not that we would do that to you!
Real sensations from a real cockpit in the full motion Fear of Flying Course.
A different approach and as real as it gets!
With a state of the art full motion simulator it really as close to the real thing that you can get. The acceleration of the aircraft, turns and of course issues like turbulence are all a physical sensation as well as a visual one as you look out of the front of the cockpit.
You’ll start with slow turns and light bumps as the aircraft leaves the ground with the pace only picking up when you are ready. As the intensity turns up we encourage you to talk to the pilot who will dispel fears and explain away annoyances such as turbulence for what they are! Nothing to fear, just a temporary annoyance. Unlike real life, we can give you the button that turns the turbulence on and off so that you have full control.
If the physical sensations of the flight are what unsettles you about air travel, this is the course for you!
What can you expect in a fear of flying session …
By the end of the session we have found that most feel a sense of accomplishment, as they should! By the end of your time with us you will have a far better understanding of the precautions used, checks and the safety of the aircraft. With this information and the experience of the virtual flight, it provides great building blocks to help you control those negative feelings.
Does it work?
Our Full Motion Fear of Flying Course over the past ten years has enabled many people to be able to cope with commercial flight. We wouldn’t say they enjoyed the experience, although some may verge on that … the goal is to get you past the wall of fear in front of you.
We have received calls and emails after our sessions from people elated that they were able to go to that far flung family wedding or overseas family holiday without feeling held back. Our sessions have worked for many many people before you and we hope to continue to help more into the future.
