Full Motion Fear of Flying Course (Turbulence)

Available at
Quadrant Systems, Burgess Hill (Near Gatwick)

Simulator Type: Full Motion

The Full Motion Fear of Flying Course is conducted 1 to 1 with a professional pilot in a 1 to 1 in scale full motion simulator. This is as real as it gets without being in the real thing with 6 degrees of freedom, you will FEEL the whole journey as the whole simulator moves.

This session is aimed at people that have a particular fear of turbulence and it’s causes although you will feel every sensation from this hyper realistic experience. Being one of only a few commercial flight simulator companies with access to these full motion machines it makes this a very unique course which ahs proven to almost eliminate previous fears.


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.

Here are some people the benefited from the session, picked straight from Tripadvisor …

I have a severe Fear of Flying and recently attended a Fear Of Flying Course, just before my holiday (with Flights booked !!) I had already tried a very expensive Fear of Flying with a Major Airline and it did not help one bit. There were so many people on an actual flight with the same fear and there were not enough staff to calm everyone. The effect was a minor mass hysteria. A colleague recommended the Fear of Flying Course (Thank you Jan!!) and as it was relatively inexpensive I thought it was worth a shot. The session was one to one and helped me to identify what part of Flying scared me the most, (the take off) we than concentrated on take offs and I acclimatised to the sensation and view. The instructor could not have been more understanding and sympathetic (Thank you Irwin) even when I got stressed and emotional he was very kind and reassured me. I even managed to take the controls at one point which is a major achievement for me. Although I am not totally cured yet, I do know that I have been helped enormously, and more than anyone else I have been to, including hypnotherapists. I just managed my first holiday in years, on a large aircraft without Panicking. A Sincere thank you to everyone there, especially to Beccy who was so kind to me before my session as I was so nervous. I was offered tea and coffee and the pre flight chat she gave me helped so much, as I knew what to expect from the session. Thank you Virtual Aerospace. You really have made a difference.

I had my flight experience today, it was fantastic and better than I expected, I really enjoyed myself and the experience of taking off, flying and landing. Mak has been great at explaining how things work which helped me with understanding more about my fear of flying. Highly recommended.
