Maybe you have been to one of our free classes in Phoenix, or maybe you just found your way to this blog post by searching for fear of flying classes in your area.


Either way, I am glad you are here.


In over 3 decades of helping many thousands of fearful flyers like yourself, find their wings again and fly worry-free, I have found that those who are ready for the next steps are those actively looking for relief, and more importantly, a solution.



I have been teaching classes at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport since 1987 and the classes you are going to read about, represent the absolute best way to get over your fear of flying the fastest, except maybe hiring me to fly with you in in what I call my Elite Custom Coaching Program.



I created this post and the video below to answer some of the most common questions about our Cleared for Takeoff 201 Advanced fear of flying class. If you are afraid to fly and suffer from anticipatory anxiety, please watch the video and/or read on.

The Cleared for Takeoff 201 Class is a “how to” skills, techniques and strategies class.



It’s what you need to know to build a flight plan to gain the confidence that you won’t have to worry about anxiety or panic attacks the next time you fly.



You need this class because you’ve become sick and tired of being sick and tired of the disappointment and dread every time you think about flying!



And you’ve tried everything!



It doesn’t matter whether you fly regularly, you use to fly and something changed, OR maybe you’ve never ever flown and you just don’t know what to expect.



Further into this post, you will also learn about special bonuses that we created for you so that this truly is the peak experience that you need and deserve it to be!


Not everybody who lands here is ready for a solution…..but, I’ve found that anyone who’s ready and lands here and comes to the class (in-person or our online classes), finds a solution!

So, the first and most obvious question is


“What do I get for my money?”


Past attendees tell us that one of the biggest benefits right from the start is meeting other fearful flyers and realizing that they are not alone.

And you get me, Capt Ron and my long-time friend and fellow captain,Eric Larsen. Together, we’ll share our combined more than 80 years of experience to deliver over 4 hours of comprehensive information about airplanes, flying, and how to manage your thoughts and emotions in a safe and relaxed classroom environment setting.



Capt Eric Larsen

When you purchase the Cleared for Takeoff 201 Class, you are automatically invited to attend an optional and informal


“Meet Your Captain and the FearlessFlight® Crew Q&A”


social gathering on Friday, before class in the evening at the same location as the class.


We have offered these socials, which are a lot of fun and highly informative before and valued it at $97 dollars. When you sign up for class however, you will be able to attend for free, if you can.


So, here is Why You Should Attend:


  • Because this is a big deal to you and we want you to feel as comfortable as you can with your FearlessFlight® Crew and your class experience.

  • You will also have a chance to meet your fellow classmates.

  • Social Collaboration is one of the three tenants of the FearlessFlight® Method and this is an easy and relaxed way to find out what you have all in common.


 Now, it’s important to note that this is NOT a prerequisite for the class!



We will however provide you with great company, interesting aviation stories, tid-bits about your class and the flight the next day.

These socials are a lot of fun and joining us may be especially useful for you


  • if are planning to arrive from out of town,

  • want to have a chance to connect on a more personal level or

  • are very anxious about the class and flight the next day.



So, there you have it.




It is literally everything you need to get over your fear of flying!

Lastly, I want to talk about the cost of the class and the real cost for you not to choose to attend.

Let me reassure you, I am aware that your decision coming to the class involves both time and money on your part.


You may be sitting here thinking…


“That’s all great Capt Ron, but I don’t know if it will work for me!”

“I don’t know, it’s a lot of money, what if it doesn’t work for me. I don’t want to waste my time and money!”



Helping people such as yourself successfully since 1987, none of these or similar themed thoughts are surprising to me.


In fact, I have come to expect and appreciate them.

I also know that while it may be interesting to you that Capt Eric and I spent over 41,000 flying hours in a cockpit flying airplanes, it doesn’t do much for the part in your brain that’s afraid.



I am inviting you briefly to remember the cost of deferring or maybe even procrastinating, out of fear that you are not ready.


  • the toll that your fear of flying had on you,

  • your loved-ones

  • and perhaps even your career?


How many fun family vacations have you had to miss because of your fear of flying?

What other meaningful life events could you not be there for, or be there as a nervous wreck because you were already dreading the flight back?



My heart goes out to you, if any of this applies to you and I am here to reassure that there is help available for you and that you can and will overcome your anxiety when you take this class and practice the tools and strategies we teach you in this class.


So, feel the fear and do it anyway.


Sign up, reach out to us and be ready for your life to take flight with more ease and calm than you can currently imagine!


I hope to see you in one over our upcoming classes!
