The SOAR Fear of Flying Program is advanced help based on research, training, and experience.
Nowhere else can you find help this advanced or this effective.
Other Forms Of Help -- mostly unchanged since 1975.
Fear of Flying Courses By Pilots:
Explain how flying works, offer statistics, and teach relaxation exercises.
Adequate for mild flight anxiety (no panic attacks, no claustrophobia, no fear of heights).
CBT: effective for ordinary anxiety; little effect on flight anxiety.
EMDR: highly effective for trauma; does not work for flight anxiety.
Does nothing at all for one person in three.
Only takes the edge off for two people out of three.
"Hit or miss" depending upon the skill of the hypnotist.
Temporary benefit at best.
