Flying with Confidence



British Airways is delighted to be returning to Dublin with our Flying with Confidence course for nervous flyers, on Saturday 10 October. Our special one day course has a 98% success rate and we’ve been running courses in the UK and Ireland for over 28 years.  The day starts at a hotel close to the airport where you will be met by our resident Irish BA pilots and our Flying with Confidence team. Our pilots will explain how an aircraft flies, what causes turbulence and all those unsettling sensations that you feel during flight. Then our psychologist will help you to understand fear and teach you how to reduce your anxiety.  Finally we will all go on a 45 minute flight from Dublin airport to put theory into practice!

The course starts at The Maldron Hotel close to Dublin Airport at 0800 and the day finishes after the flight at 1630.  Refreshments and a buffet carvery are included. Complimentary parking is available at the hotel. The price for the course is €299 including the flight. This course is available for booking now, take the first step towards flying with confidence!

If you want to bring someone with you on the day for the flight only, you are able to book them on for €149.
