The one-day course was held on the 26 Oc­to­ber at the Sher­a­ton Grand Ho­tel in Dubai and was led by BA cabin crew and pi­lots

Last month, Bri­tish Air­ways once again hosted its pop­u­lar Fly­ing With Con­fi­dence course. Draw­ing upon the ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise of the car­rier’s own pi­lots and cabin crew, the course helps UAE res­i­dents to con­quer their fears of fly­ing, by ad­dress­ing the var­i­ous psy­cho­log­i­cal chal­lenges as­so­ci­ated with air-travel.

Boast­ing a suc­cess rate of 98%, the course has, since its in­cep­tion, re­port­edly helped more than 50,000 at­ten­dees in the Mid­dle East alone. Split into two ses­sions over a sin­gle day, the course ad­dressed com­mon flight oc­cur­rences and pro­vided par­tic­i­pants var­i­ous ways of cop­ing with them. This in­cluded cov­er­ing air­craft func­tions, causes of tur­bu­lence, as well as other tech­ni­cal as­pects of avi­a­tion.

BA’s team of ex­perts lead­ing the course also in­structed par­tic­i­pants on the var­i­ous breath­ing ex­er­cises and re­lax­ation tech­niques that will aid in con­trol­ling one’s anx­i­eties.
