We understand the impact an aversion to flying can have on those affected; whether it’s connecting with friends and family, taking that business trip, or enjoying a new holiday experience, travel is an essential part of island life.

Since 2017 we have helped 100s of island residents overcome this aversion with our proven ‘Freedom to Fly’ programme, which takes place over two days and includes classroom sessions with a behavioural coach and our senior Captains, culminating in an experience flight. We’re proud to host this complimentary course in our home islands and of the difference it has continued to make to many.

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.

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.

  • Regulation and safety within aviation
  • Training that pilots undertake
  • Understanding how an aircraft works and its safety features
  • What different sounds mean
  • What is happening at each stage of the flight
  • Understanding turbulence
  • Why things happen during a flight
