Successful Spring Flight Seminar

Ten very brave people faced their fears of flying over the weekend of May 5-6, 2012. The group spent two days with psychologist Dr. Ian Shulman and commercial pilot, Captain Marc-Antoine Plourde working to understand what scares them about flying and learning how to cope more effectively”. Like most fearful fliers, many in the group began the weekend thinking they would feel less afraid if they learned more about flight and airplanes. However, by the end of the workshop each participant noted discovering that their fears had little to do with airplanes and far more to do with the strategies each had been using to deal with adversity throughout their life. When they dealt with that, many said they felt more confident about their ability to handle flying. Our next workshop will happen in fall 2012.
