I avoided flying altogether, have been watching all my friends go on great holidays for years with so much jealousy!
During the Fearless Flyers course I wasn’t convinced that I was actually going to get on.
Then I was filled with so much knowledge and given so much support, and I flew, and loved it!!
I just wanted to share with you my experience since the fearless flying course in Perth last year.
Firstly, the course was fantastic. Best value of any courses I have ever been on! Couldn’t rate it highly enough.
Two weeks, following the course I had a train ride booked to Adelaide on the Indian Pacific. That was booked beforehand, so I did it anyway and drove back to Perth with my dad.
Then I booked a flight to Exmouth to catch up with my family a few weeks later…. A bit scary but totally fine. It was a low and thick cloud landing without a hitch so that was cool.
Then I kind of went from strength to strength. Being lucky enough to fly for work I flew to Sydney for a conference in June, then the Gold Coast (personal) then Brisbane (work). Then Darwin in August, Melbourne speaking at a conference in October, then another speaking enagement in Melbourne in November and on to Tassie… .etc.
So I have made it to every capital city in Australia in the last 10 months which I’m really proud of and really thankful to you.
See attached I have made a map of where I have flown.
I have come to love flying. As an engineer I love the engineering aspects of flying. I have got into using a flight simulator at home and love that. Now getting on a plane is a thing of interest and dare I say it almost relaxing (kicking back watching a movie).
You probably get lots of these stories! Happy to share mine at an upcoming course if you like.
