Turkish Aviation Academy has been continuing to work at full speed since 2007 to introduce the “Conquer Your Fear of Flight Program” to Europe especially to Germany in order to help those who can’t fly or who are anxious while flying to overcome these feelings of fear. The program has being held in Turkey since 2007.

Within the scope of this project, Aviation Academy Marketing and Sales Manager Mustafa Demirak, Marketing and Sales Supervisor Recep Çağdaş, Pilot-in-Command Burç Koçer, Cabin Ground Instructor Özlem Tezeker and Psychologist Alev Ünel visited Lufthansa Flight Training Center in Frankfurt, Germany to carry out pre-assessments and observations. Sales and Product Management Director from Lufthansa Flight Training Center Steffen Zwiener took part in the meeting.

The program which has over 90% success rate in Turkey is unique in that it offers; technical and pilotage information in relation to aircraft in the classroom by aviation experts (pilot, technical instructor, cabin instructor), psychological assessments regarding the participant’s fear of flight, virtual flights on the cabin simulator and a real flight experience accompanied by the experts.

The program which is planned to be initiated in the immediate future in both English and German, is expected to receive a great deal of attention.  The program which will commence all over Europe and particularly in Germany is anticipated to be a huge success.
