Online single subject Take-Off Course

How to turn fear and anxiety into productive participation and fun!

If you're like many pilots, then you remember the excitement of taking your spouse, significant other, or close friend flying only to have them clearly dislike the experience and in many cases swear never to fly again. Now ... for the first time ... there's a course that can help you turn this fear and anxiety into productive participation and fun!
  • Enjoy lifetime course access
  • This course is mobile friendly
52 minutes

This innovative, interactive course lets passengers and their pilots work together to create meaningful pre-flight and in-flight roles that lead to shared enjoyment and roles in the risk management of the flight.
Because pilots and passengers often see flying differently, what thrills one can often be very stressful to the other. And ... even passengers who enjoy flying at first can develop a strong dislike for flying if they feel that things are out of their control.
How This Course will Change Flying Together
When you've completed the course, you'll see flying through each other's eyes and you'll know how to take a joint path to productive participation. You will have learned risk-management skills and gained communication tools that will increase your confidence. The passenger will become engaged as the pilot shares control—and both of you will gain immense satisfaction that will make your flying fun!
  • Pilots and Non-Pilots See Flying Differently
  • The Path to Productive Participation
  • How Non-Pilots Can Help Manage Risks
  • Tips for Greater Passenger Confidence

Unedited Customer Reviews
Good for spouses
This is great for small airplanes but not for any cabin-class aircraft  where the passengers are not in the cockpit and/or not related to the pilot.

Practical Risk Management For Reluctant Passengers and Their Pilots
Great for passengers
This was a great course to share with my partner, who is irrationally terrified of flying. Maybe after they go through it they will want to fly with me again. Also a good course for my sister and mom, who also have hesitation about flying.
