No fewer than 35 out of every 100 people develop a form of fear of flying. How is that possible? Fear of flying is often caused by unpleasant experiences. Sometimes it is, often unknowingly, transferred to you by family or friends.
Fear of flying can be a major obstacle for vacations, business trips or visiting family. Fortunately, something can be done and we are happy to help you with that.
Fear of flying varies enormously per person. That is why the program is tailored to your needs. Overcoming fear of flying can be scary and confronting. Our specialists have experience with this and help you through this process step by step. You follow the program at a pace that makes you feel comfortable. The total training takes almost 2 hours.
You always start a with a conversation with our specialist. This is outside the simulator, with a cup of coffee or tea. We determine what exactly is your fear. Then we focus the training on those parts that are most relevant to you.
The next step is the 'mock-up'. This is a copy of the cockpit of the Boeing 737. All the buttons, levers and switches are in it but they do not work. The instructor gives a brief explanation of what the pilots are doing in the air. When you are ready, you go take a seat in the simulator with our instructor. Nothing happens yet, first you just sit there and take in the impressions of the cockpit. The instructor gives more information and explanation about flying.
The next step is that we are going to simulate flying. We naturally start calmly and gradually make it more realistic. In addition, we focus on the parts that are most difficult for you. For example, we can fly with turbulence or with poor visibility. The instructor goes through various scenarios with you and explains how things are done in the cockpit. Because it is a full motion simulator you can feel everything like 'in real life'.
The simulator is an exact replica of a Boeing 737 cockpit. All buttons and instruments work as in the real plane. The cockpit can move with the flying motions. This simulator is also used for pilot training. Because the simulator can move while flying, it is indistinguishable from the real thing. The simulator can also be flown 'static'. Then you see the horizon moving but you don't feel it. That is a lot less realistic and therefore a good compromise for some.
This training is given at Lelystad Airport. This is a small but busy airport with a lot of recreational air traffic. There is a restaurant near the runway with a view of all the planes that come and go. You also have a view of the runway from the training location.

Erg realistisch en nu meegemaakt hoe vliegen echt is in de simulator. Veel geleerd met name de backup systemen die zorgen voor veiligheid

Heel veel geleerd, had niet verwacht dat het zo’n leuke ervaring zou zijn.

Ik vondt t heel erg boeiend en t heeft mij zeker geholpen om ondanks mijn vliegangst te gaan vliegen
Een speciale dank gaat uit naar Jeroen en Luc omdat ik met hun over mijn vliegangst heb kunnen praten.
Vondt t ook heel interessant om een kijkje te nemen in een cockpit en wat er allemaal bij komt kijken.
