How much?

FREE - it's on us!

Travel is an essential part of island life. Yet we know that many are affected by an anxiety or fear of flying, which has a very real impact on the ability of those to connect with family and friends, take that business trip or enjoy a new holiday experience.

We’d like to help. Bringing together classroom sessions with our training pilots, a behavioural change coach and putting the learnings into action in an experience flight our previous Freedom to Fly courses have changed the lives of previous attendees. What’s more, our courses are complimentary.

We are offering new course dates in Guernsey & Jersey in the new year, apply now and look forward to travelling once again

What previous delegates say...

I was determined to do this for my daughter's sake. I want to be able to go on holidays as a family. This course has changed my life!

AMANDA

It was a very positive experience for me, so much information, all logical and I feel much better placed to take back control of my fear.

DUNCAN

I’m already looking into where I want to go on my next holiday and I am doing it without the worry of knowing that I have to fly there.

HELEN

DO IT!! IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! 100% highly recommend!! I had no panics on the experience flight. I cried on the flight with joy, not fear!

LISA

For the first time in 18 years I got on the plane with no Diazepam or Valium and no other distractions. The support was incredible.

CAROLINE

We all did it and we were buzzing afterwards. Commendable dedication and generosity by Blue Islands.

GILLIAN

The course was fantastic and it answered all the questions that I have been panicking about for years.

CHANTELLE

Living on an island means not having the confidence to fly can have a big impact on your life. Holidays can be missed out on, work affected and experiences other people take for granted not possible. This two day course will help give you a full understanding of the aviation world, before teaching you how to manage and confront your fears.

Let us give you the freedom to fly
