To bring the benefits of its Flying without Fear course, Virgin Altantic brings a new application for the iPhone. With a success rate in surplus of 98 percent, the Flying Without Fear course is highly acclaimed as it helps people to overcome their fears of flying.

This app has been developed to help people overpower their fears associated with any unfamiliar aircraft and its strange noises. Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Without Fear team and Mental Workout team up to develop this innovative app from the successful course.

Richard Branson, President of Virgin Atlantic, said “This is Virgin Atlantic innovation at its best. Our first iPhone app will bring the benefits of our successful Flying Without Fear course to millions of people around the world who are now using mobile technology to make their lives better. The app will put many travelers at ease and enable them to prepare for their first Virgin Atlantic flight.”

“Mental Workout is dedicated to provide people with mobile tools that harness best-in-class expertise to improve and enhance their lives. With approximately one in three adults afraid of flying, we wanted to make the best therapeutic tools available to everyone who wishes to take control of that fear. By creating this app in partnership with Virgin Atlantic, we can help those who have a fear of flying — whether acute, mild, or only occasional — control that fear and by doing so broaden their world”, said Mickey Beyer-Clausen, founder of Mental Workout.

The app contains a special introduction by Richard Branson. It features a full video-based in-flight explanation, frequently asked questions, relaxation exercises and fear therapy, a fear button for emergencies with breathing exercises and quick tips. The app also offers a “My Program” section that allows users to rate their personal fears and add future flights to prepare for the next trip. In addition, users are also offered 2,000 points as bonus when they join Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club.

Users can download the Flying Without Fear app from the Apple App Store for $4.99.
