Afraid of Flying? Flight Simulator Midlands Can Help


In 2017 and, with flights across the globe available from as little as £30, the world truly is your oyster. The internet is bursting with pictures of fantastic people and places, bargain holiday packages and lists encouraging you to “see these places before you die”. With the average life expectancy increasing all the time, there has never been a better time to indulge your wanderlust and explore the incredible planet we call home.


But, for those with a fear of flying, it isn’t that easy. When the idea of boarding a plane fills you- or your partner- with crippling anxiety, these discoveries can seem unreachable. Even an expenses-paid business trip becomes a source of dread, rather than excitement.

Flight Simulator Midlands believe that everyone deserves to be able to fly in comfort, and build pleasant memories of their trips abroad. Now, on our one-day Fear of Flying course, at the helpful, experienced hands of Captain Chris Rigby, you can say goodbye to your reservations and discover the true enjoyment of modern-day flight.


“I have been privileged to assist them in overcoming their fears and it is immensely rewarding when guests come back to me to tell me that they can’t believe they have just flown without the Temazipan or the triple G&T.”


Chris, pilot and the founder of Flight Simulator Midlands, has decades of experience flying aircrafts. After graduating from the College of Air Training Hamble in 1970, he has worked at BOAC, Britannia (Thomsons) easyJet, British Airways and Ryanair. Under his wing, you’ll finally be able to experience flying as it should be.

Five years after the company began, there are 3 incredible flight simulators available, for between 2 and 3 observers; including the Airbus A320, which used to be an actual aircraft!

The course involves time in one of the simulators, and extra time can be booked if you want to fully immerse yourself in the experience. By the end of the day, you might not want to leave!

What You Will Learn

The power, Chris believes, is in the individual. He doesn’t cure your fear, he teaches you how to master it using techniques that can last a lifetime.  You will look at flying from several different perspectives; the psychology behind the fear will help you understand it better, whilst learning more about the technical, security and maintenance of an aircraft will help settle your very rational concerns.

The Course

Chris only works in small groups, in order to help his clients on a very personal basis. Usually the activities will run on Sundays, 9.15am to approximately 16.00pm. They can take place at Coventry Airport, where the company is based, or at a location of your preference.

The cost is £150 per person, and includes lunch and soft refreshments.

Holiday planning is already full of stresses- don’t let the fear of flying add more. sosmartinfotech .cf
