Stephanie’s flight to Fearlessness!

I have always been a nervous flyer. Most of my anxiety was associated with turbulence. At age 15 I flew through what turned out to be a very significant storm. People were panicking and a few passengers even required oxygen from tanks provided by the flight attendants. In short, I thought I was going to die that day.

Since then I avoided flying as much as possible and my  fear has only become worse. Even when just discussing the possibility of flying, I would feel this pit in my stomach, accompanied with terrible fear and dread. I even considered cancelling my own honeymoon.

That’s when I started my research on the internet and found Capt Ron’s FearlessFlight. I booked a free 15-Minute Coaching session and immediately knew that with his help and the support of his team, I could overcome my fear of flying.

I got myself Capt Ron’s FearlessFlight Kit and started listening to it.

I wanted to visit my family back East as well as my in-laws, so I thought that attending the Cleared for Takeoff 201 Class in the morning and flying with Capt Ron and a group of like-minded people would be very beneficial for me.

And it truly was!

During class, something inside of me shifted and I now feel confident, and even excited, whenever I think about flying.

I am happy to say that my husband and I enjoyed a great honeymoon in Hawaii and that I did extremely well on my flights. I have my life back and my husband and I are planning a vacation to Europe sometime soon.

Thank you Capt Ron and thank you to the FearlessFlight Team who has worked so hard to create a wonderfully engaging, safe and supportive environment during the Cleared for Takeoff 201 and 301 classes.

Capt Ron Nielsen

Known as Capt Ron to many thousands of fearful flyers he has helped since 1987, he is an internationally recognized fear of flying expert. Growing up in rural Indiana, since second grade, he longed to become a pilot and “rise above” those “surly bonds” of earthly existence. An Air Force Academy graduate with a tour in Vietnam, Captain Ron Nielsen accumulated over 16,000 hours during his career as a commercial pilot flying a Boeing 737. 

As a recognized authority in human factors and pilot performance, Ron designed and delivered programs to reduce the likelihood of aviation accidents due to human error. He served on the Air Transport Association’s Human Factors Subcommittee and has spoken at numerous national conferences on human factors in aviation. 

His love of aviation and curiosity about the role of psychology in pilot performance led him to an M.A. in Professional Counseling and a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Human Resources.  Ron has devoted most of his adult life exploring learning technologies to understand how adults best learn.

 Captain Ron is also the author and creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul Presents The FearlessFlight Kit®. He is a keynote speaker on fear of flying, conflict resolution, performance management, and the paradox of personality. As an aviation industry expert, he has been featured on The Today Show, Weekend Live, NBC’s Nightly News, CSNBC, and MSNBC.

He has also been featured in nationally recognized publications like USA Today, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal.
