Many people suffer anxiety at the prospect of flying. These fears range from anxiety at booking a trip to complete inability to board an aircraft. Whether it is the unfamiliar aircraft, the strange noises a plane makes, or the fear of losing control, this app is designed to help people overcome their personal fears.
Sir Richard Branson, President of Virgin Atlantic:
"This is Virgin Atlantic innovation at its best. Our first iPhone app will bring the benefits of our successful Flying Without Fear course to millions of people around the world who are now using mobile technology to make their lives better. The app will put many travellers at ease and enable them to prepare for their first Virgin Atlantic flight."
Virgin Atlantic's Flying Without Fear team recently helped American actress Whoopi Goldberg overcome her fear of flying. The actress had not flown for a decade but a business commitment in London meant she had to step on a plane once again.
After going through the course, Whoopi Goldberg said:
"I was a sceptic. I hadn't flown in 13 years but after doing their program, I understood that while my fear was real, there were many things I didn't know or had misinformation about, which they were able to clear up. So what happened? The program works. I now fly. It's that simple."

What's New in Version 1.2
* Broken relaxation exercises are replaced
* Minor bugs fixed
I've been using the app for the past two years and I fly because I have to. I use the product at night when I start to buy my ticket to train my self for the flight. I then listen to it when I'm on the flight. My only complaint is that I wish they would incorporate the noise we would hear on the plane. This would make it easier for me to listen to it and not think about the real engine in the background . Here is a tip for all you nervous flyers out there put a cup of water on your flight and watch how little it moves. That should help you visual see that turbulence is like a car stepping on a rock. This app is just in app. It won't make miracles.
Changed my life!
This app has completely changed my life. Before I began using this app, I was totally crazy. I'd try to rent a car while in the airport to drive to my destination instead of flying. I even looked into buying a parachute for a flight. Through listening to this app, I am way more calm. I can get on a plane without having a panic attack. Also, during a very turbulent flight through thunder storms, the 30 minute breathing exercises got me through. I really recommend this app!
Helpful for long term use
I have had this app for about two and a half years and have used it multiple times with success. In fact on a recent flight where I had no headphones I was able to repeat some of the lessons and answers to questions (like about turbulence) in my head and it calmed me down.
That being said I do wish there were more frequent updates and more answered questions. This app has been well worth the money.
