Cockpit Vista FAQ
Air travel is an inescapable part of our life. Flight and aviation cause considerable anxiety that takes a toll on health, happiness and wealth. Although aeroplanes are the safest mode of travel, the anxiety is usually caused by lack of credible information and myths.

Yes. in the western and developed nations, it is a standard practice to attend Flight Awareness Programs. Infact, in the west, the airlines value passenger safety and wellness considerably and take charge of this issue. All major airlines like British Airways, Air France, Virgin Atlantic (to name a few) conduct various Flight Awareness courses for all age groups including passengers with fear of flying. In addition, aviation consulting firms like ‘Soars’ also run similar programs. Flight Anxiety is a burning issue and one can visit their websites to guage how predominant such courses are in developed nations. Cockpit Vista is the first such initiative for passengers and children in India.
United Nations (ICAO) has established that FOUR OUT OF TEN air travelers across all age groups have some form of Flight Anxiety which affects their wellbeing. Onset of Flight Anxiety can be seen early as a child, hence, to reverse the onset we recommend attending the program earliest at age of 10 years onwards. Further, much against common belief, a large number of jet setters and frequent fliers experience flight anxiety and suffer the outcome!!! Adult passengers of all age groups including jet setters / frequent fliers should attend the program sooner for their wellbeing.
