British Airways is bringing its ‘Flying with Confidence’ course to London City Airport for the first time.

Over 50,000 people have taken the course over the last 30 years.   It is run by British Airways Captain Steve Allright and a specialist team who explain the technical side of flying, challenging regular areas of concern such as turbulence.

It also includes advice from a clinical psychologist on relaxation techniques and managing anxiety.  The day finishes with a flight on an Embraer 170 jet like this one:

The course will take place on Sunday 25th August and will be based at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel, New Providence Wharf, before moving over to the airport for your flight.

The course costs £335 including the flight.  Guest can accompany course members on the flight for £129.  You can book here.
