Attendees can then put their new skills and knowledge into practise on a one hour flight featuring full in-flight commentary.

Brian Craig, previous Belfast course attendee, said: “I finally took my wife on our dream honeymoon. We went to New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. It was 5 flights within the space of 2 weeks. “Never thought I would ever see America or be able to do so many flights, but thanks to this amazing course I was able to overcome my biggest fear, FLYING, and I even enjoyed the flights. We were even seated separately for one of the flights and it was fine. “Before this course I would never have been able to do this. Thank you so much for all your help.”

Mark Wein, easyJet’s Fearless Flyer Course Director, said: “We’re really pleased to be returning to Belfast with our Fearless Flyer course to help passengers in the region conquer their fear, particularly just before the summer period so people can fly to some fantastic destinations for their summer holidays. “Our course has been a phenomenal success throughout the UK over the past few years, with in excess of 95% of participants taking to the skies fearlessly following the course. “The course is always really emotional with an amazing atmosphere and there are lots of smiles and tears of joy as people learn to fly fearlessly – some for the first time in their lives.”
