Fear of Flying App

Description

Flight App, courtesy of the VALK Foundation: Your in-flight therapist.

Never be alone with your fear of flying. The VALK Flight App will coach you through difficult flying moments. Whether it’s weeks or months prior to your journey, just before your flight, at the airport or on the airplane: with this App your in-flight therapist is with you all the way. The App provides you with facts, so your mind stops telling you the things that make you afraid, with exercises to reduce your stress level, handy tips and a special panic button option.

The app is based on scientifically researched methods of treatment as used by the VALK Foundation during their regular therapeutic training sessions.
The VALK Foundation has a 98% success rate and is a non-profit organization.

You can use the Flight App during the flight with your phone in airplane mode. Once the app is downloaded you do not need an Internet connection.


The main menu includes:

The Flight, The Facts, Relaxation Techniques, The Panic Button and Further Information.

The Flight
Here you find information and tips about what you can do before your trip, what happens during take-off, the cruise flight, turbulence and landing.

The Facts
Here you find amongst other things: facts about flying (a mini-aviation course), important statistics, information about the effects of fear, and tips for your well-being during the flight.

Relaxation Techniques
This part offers you a text and an audio version of a relaxation exercise.

The Panic Button
When you are very afraid, the panic button can help. By pushing the panic button you immediately activate an audio message and a therapist helps you to decrease your tension levels.

Information
The VALK Foundation is a collaboration between Air France KLM, Transavia, Arkefly, Martinair, Leiden University and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The institute was founded in 1989 and treats people with fear of flying and related complaints, based on years of scientific research. Together with the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology of Leiden University, the VALK Foundation does on-going research into the treatment of fear of flying. Together with other universities and treatment facilities we perform international investigations on the topic of fear of flying.

Waste of $4

If you have a fear of flying, there is nothing new on this App that will help you. The small amount of information provided is less than what you can find through a basic internet search. Which, if you have a fear of flying, you’ve probably already read and found that it really didn’t help. If you need basic relaxation techniques, there are far better Apps. This only comes with one basic breathing exercise. Sorry to say that this was a total waste of $4.

A Set-Up For Failure

Despite claims, breathing exercises do not adequately regulate flight anxiety. By being led to believe they are effective when they are not, the anxious flier is set up for failure. The idea that fear is based on thoughts ignore the basic fact the stress hormones also lead to fear, and stress hormones are released every time there is an unexpected noise, movement, or drop - even if the person understands the meaning of the noise, movement, or drop.

This App isn't Very Helpful

I feel like I wasted my money on this. I'm leaving next week for a trip and don't feel any better about flying than I did prior to using this app.
