Tell me more about the COCKPIT VISTA FLIGHT ANXIETY REMOVAL program
Flight Anxiety refers to the discomfort to an individual on board a plane and may begin as early as the person comes to know of an upcoming flight trip. The anxiety is no different from that seen when we are referred to a doctor for a surgery !!!
The degree of anxiety varies from mild discomfort as seen in most of the affected passengers and in few cases may manifest in refusal to board a flight or violent behaviour on board a plane. The extreme case is identified as a case of 'fear of flying'.
Mild forms of flight anxiety are usually due to misinformation and myths about aviation environment. Understandably, most cases of flight anxiety can be addressed by correcting the perceptions. Serious cases can be addressed with many sessions of consulting and often requires intervention of a Avation Psycologist.
Cockpit Vista specialises in Flight Anxiety Removal Programs. The Basic Flight Anxiety Removal Program is a combination of fun flying, knowledge and therapy. Each person or a group of family members / friends are heard completely in an interactive session with the Aviation Consultant / Advisor and the correct perspective is experienced by yourself flying a plane safely. The process also helps identify the acute cases who need continued consulting and need to go through Advanced (Fear of Flying) Removal Program
Cockpit Vista recommends minimum session of three hours for basic Program. This is usually followed with another one hour session some days later after a real flight.
However if most of your family members are anxious of flights and you travel together often, it is recommended that the family attends the program together so as to have a common understanding of the subject and to be of assistance to each other during the real flights.
FEAR OF FLYING
It is known that a very small percentage of Flight Anxiety cases are affected by extreme symptoms known as "fear of flying" to an extent that they refuse to board a flight or display irrational behaviour on board the flight. Most of them take medication to overcome the stressful travel. All such cases require a triangular consulting with a Aviation Medicine Specialist in coordination with a Aviation Consultant and a Pilot.
Cockpit Vista organises sessions for affected passengers wherein the three specialist interact with the passenger to remove the fear. The interaction continues over few sessions and in most cases interleaved with real flights. The program is usually a one on one sessions and is completely customised.
