Cleared for Takeoff LIVE
We’ve combined our two most popular fear of flying classes in a new course called Cleared for Takeoff LIVE. In this new class we will cover topics formerly covered in Cleared for Takeoff 101 (classroom portion) and Cleared for Takeoff 102 (boarding a plane). With the help of Southwest Airlines in Phoenix, we now can offer both the classroom and airplane experience in the same evening. Classes for the next few months are listed on Eventbrite where you can register for the one that fits your schedule.
Cleared For Takeoff LIVE Class for Fear of Flying
This is a free class conducted at Sky Harbor Airport in a classroom and on a stationary aircraft. This is an introductory course to give the fearful flyer an overview of the fear process, learn coping strategies, and become educated about what fearful flyers fear most—takeoffs and turbulence.
Capt. Ron believes that one of the first things fearful flyers need to do is share their story about their fear of flying. Fearful flyers come to this fear of flying class feeling alone in their fear, but after sharing what makes them afraid to fly, they begin to relax as they realize they’re not the only ones with a fear of flying.

Once fearful flyers have taken CFT LIVE, many are ready for the next step— an actual practice flight. You have to fly to get over fear of flying!
A flight of an hour or so in duration is ideal. Scheduling a flight to California or Las Vegas is a good choice so that the fearful flyer can practice their new coping skills and knowledge learned in CFT LIVE without becoming too overwhelmed with the idea of facing a flight of several hours. Overcoming fear of flying is accomplished in small steps!
