Does flying turn you into a quivering wreck?
If so, you’re not alone…
Each day, I hear from normal people who’re TERRIFIED of air travel.
For example, a Fear of Flying School subscriber emailed me recently and said:
“I am experiencing severe flight anxiety to the point where I can’t sleep and I am in tears every day thinking about my trip coming up this Monday.”
Meanwhile, another subscriber emailed me to say:
“The last time I tried to go to a conference I got to the airport in a state of total debilitating panic. I broke out in a cold sweat, shook all over developed sweaty palms and threw up at the gate.”
Someone else tells me:
“Can’t get excited about holidays cos I have the trauma of getting on a plane.”
I’ve been there
Every time I get one of these emails, I nod my head in recognition.
Because I used to be in your shoes.
In fact, I was so terrified I quit flying for years.
I simply could NOT get on a plane.
That was until I mastered the skills needed to become a fearless flier.
Since then, I’ve happily flown hundreds of times all over the world.
How did I do it?
And more importantly, how can you do the same?
I’ll share the details with you in a moment.
But first, I want to tell you a bit more about me:
I originally come from Australia, a vast country where flying is an essential part of life.
But unfortunately, I hated flying from when I was a kid – and by the time I was a teenager, I’d spend weeks worrying about an upcoming flight.
Then things got even worse because in my mid-20’s I started having panic attacks on planes.
In fact, every time I stepped on an aircraft, I was CONVINCED I was going to die.
And that was before we’d even taken off.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, things got so bad that I stopped flying all together.
Well, that got rid of one problem but it gave rise to two bigger ones.
Firstly, I now had to travel massive distances by land.
For example, I was working in Sydney which is on the opposite side of the country from my hometown of Perth.
And whether you drive or take the train, travelling from Sydney to Perth takes five days.
That’s one way…
But not being able to travel wasn’t the only problem.
Because, frankly, my phobia also made me feel like a failure.
A time for action
Anyway, after two and half years of not flying, I decided that the life I wanted simply wasn’t possible without happily getting airborne on a regular basis.
That’s when I enrolled in a fear of flying course run by a local airline.
One evening a week for about 8 weeks, I attended a class at Sydney airport where pilots and other aviation experts explained every element of air travel.
And besides addressing things like how a plane stays in the air, they also walked us through the hundreds of other things that worry nervous fliers.
Like what happens if an engine fails on takeoff?
Can a plane survive violent turbulence?
And is it more dangerous to fly at night?
Now, you might be wondering what the purpose of all this learning was.
After all, even though you’ve heard a million times how safe flying is, you’ve never quite believed it.
So why should more facts make any difference?
Well, it turns out that the way you conquer a fear of flying is to get a fully rounded understanding of how the business of flight works.
Then you combine this with special techniques in relaxation and controlling negative thoughts.
That’s how on the last day of the course, I managed to catch TWO commercial flights.
That life-changing day was in 1996.
Since then, I’ve been on hundreds of planes.
And every time, I’ve successfully used those techniques to further reduce my fears.
Today, not only do I enjoy flying, but more importantly, I cherish the way that killing off my fear has transformed my life.
For example, it’s allowed me to regularly travel all over the world for both work and pleasure.
In fact, I now live in London – a 24-hour flight away from Sydney.
And I’ve flown that route so often in the past 18 years that I’ve literally lost count of how many times I’ve done it.
Now it’s your turn…
OK – so now that you know my story, the big question is this:
Are you ready to follow in my footsteps?
In other words, do you want to deal with YOUR fear of flying – starting today?
If you do – if you really do – I’ve got good news:
I’ve just written and launched the ULTIMATE fear of flying course.
In a nutshell, it’s a ridiculously detailed blueprint that hands you the tools and techniques that I’ve used to beat my own fear of flying.
And which I still use today.
In summary, it contains the information you need to CRUSH your fear of flying.
At this point, you’re probably wondering what specifics you’ll find in my course.
I’ll walk you through the details in a moment.
But before I do, there are a couple of things I want to be clear about…
For a start, I don’t have any formal qualifications in the field of anxiety management.
In other words, I’m not a psychologist, doctor or other kind of healthcare professional.
Nor do I have any formal qualifications related to aviation.
To hear directly from healthcare and aviation professionals, I suggest you check out my Interviews with Experts.
Meanwhile, I can’t promise you that any of the techniques I used to overcome my own fear of flying will help you overcome yours.
In fact, if you spot anyone who guarantees to solve your fear of flying problem, I suggest you run in the opposite direction.
Heck, even doctors don’t guarantee they’ll make you well again.
Finally, there’s one more thing you should know: I prefer techniques that randomized controlled trials have proven to work best.
That’s why those techniques form the backbone of my 53-page course.
So with those points out of the way, let’s dive in to what you’ll find in my program…
My course explained
In terms of structure, the course has 9 chapters.
2. Fear of Flying Explained
3. Mental Attitude
4. Background Anxiety
5. Panic Attacks
6. Catastrophic Thoughts
7. Learn About Flying
8. Take Baby Steps
9. Focused Flying
Let me tell you a little about what’s in each one:
Chapter 1 – the Introduction – explains what it means to ‘overcome’ your fear of flying.
Meanwhile, Chapter 2 – Fear of Flying Explained – reveals that there isn’t just one kind of phobia related to flying. It then sets out the most common phobias people have that cause them to loath air travel (if you’re not quite sure what it is you hate about flying, you’ll find this especially useful).
In Chapter 3 – Mental Attitude – I walk you through the mindset you’ll need if you’re serious about getting results.
Chapter 4 – Background Anxiety – explains an all-important piece of the puzzle. And what you need to do about it.
As you can imagine, Chapter 5 – Panic Attacks – takes a deep-dive into what they are, how they work – and how you can manage them.
In Chapter 6 – Catastrophic Thoughts – you’ll get the low-down on those horrible thoughts that keep popping into your mind (e.g. ‘What if there’s turbulence?’ or ‘What if I have a panic attack?’). Best of all, this chapter will show you how to biff those thoughts whenever they try sabotaging your mind.
Chapter 7 – Learn About Flying – explains why you need to stop thinking about flight as being somehow weird. It then helps you understand how flying ACTUALLY works.
Next, in Chapter 8 – Take Baby Steps – I detail for you a specific plan of action for tackling your phobia.
Finally, Chapter 9 – Focused Flying – shows you how to apply the stuff you’ve learnt when you’re ACTUALLY on a plane.
How To Deal With Your Phobia – Starting TODAY
As I see it, you now really have two options…
Option #1: Figure It Out On Your Own
Unfortunately, there are a TON of things to figure out.
And it could take you forever (I’m not kidding when I say I’ve been refining this stuff for over 20 years).
In the meantime, if you’re anything like I used to be, you might find that in the lead-up to a trip (including trips that are supposed to be fun), all you’ll be thinking is:
…‘I wish I wasn’t going’…
…‘I wish I could cancel’…
…‘I wish I could just give my ticket to someone else’.
Which leads me to…
Option #2: Let Me Help You
I’ve done the hard work for you by assembling a course that gives you a step-by-step process for tackling your fear of flying.
With my course in your hands, you can get on with actually dealing with your fear of flying – starting TODAY.
So what are people who’ve downloaded my course saying about it?
One person emailed me to say:
“Thanks for your hard work in writing an excellent fear of flying fighting book. What I loved about it is a good design and short statements which are easy to remember.”
Meanwhile, another person says:
“Even the first 2 chapters make totally sense already… I wanted to drive home next week but I will suck it up and get back on that plane…You are now my holiday reading…”
I’ve also received this kind note:
“Thank you for making this guide, I’m really glad I found it. I know I won’t be “cured” of my fear before my holiday, but it is already reducing a bit of my fear and I find it comforting knowing someone else has gone through exactly what I am going through.”
How much am I asking?
By now, you’re probably wondering how much my eBook costs.
Before I tell you, it’s worth bearing in mind that the handful of courses out there, typically cost up to $500.
Some are even more.
Meanwhile a single 1-hour session with a therapist could easily cost you $150.
Just five of those will set you back $750 🙁
So what am I asking for my complete step-by-step course?
My money-back guarantee
Even better, if you buy my course and then decide within 30 days that it’s not right for you, I’ll happily refund your full $79.
No questions asked.
You can even keep your copy of the course.
Needless to say, a few people have pointed out that my guarantee is a recipe for people to rip me off.
In other words, the odd bad apple will buy the course, download it and then immediately demand a refund.
I’ll take those lumps if it makes it easier for people who’re genuine about dealing with their fear of flying (that’s you I hope ☺) to go ahead and say ‘yes’.
Let’s do this…
