Many thousands of fearful flyers like you have attended the Cleared for Takeoff Classes over the last 31+ years at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.
Now you can FINALLY do the same here in the Los Angeles Area!
As you know, the fear of flying is actually an anxiety disorder, or also often referred to as flight phobia.
A phobia is an intense fear that is out of proportion to the danger, which is particularly relevant to fear of flying.
Like most anxious fliers you probably know the statistics and most likely even agree that flying is safe.
Yet you have a have a hard time reconciling your very real fear with the facts about aviation safety statistics.
Although you know your phobia is not logical, you cannot “think” yourself out of it...
During the Cleared for Takeoff 101 Class I teach my students that overcoming your Fear of Flying is a Process.
32+ years of experience prove that you need to have a system you can follow step-by-step to guarantee your success in overcoming your fear of flying!
The Cleared for Takeoff 201 Class is the only Advanced Fear of Flying Class to give you the confidence flying is safe and the confidence you can manage your feelings!
This Class is where you will build YOUR own FearlessFlight® Plan!
What you need is...
Stephanie's flight to Fearlessness!
I have always been a nervous flyer. Most of my anxiety was associated with turbulence. At age 15 I flew through what turned out to be a very significant storm. People were panicking and a few passengers even required oxygen from tanks provided by the flight attendants. In short, I thought I was going to die that day.
Since then I avoided flying as much as possible and my fear has only become worse. Even when just discussing the possibility of flying, I would feel this pit in my stomach, accompanied with terrible fear and dread. I even considered cancelling my own honeymoon.
That's when I started my research on the internet and found Capt Ron's FearlessFlight. I booked a free 15-Minute Coaching session and immediately knew that with his help and the support of his team, I could overcome my fear of flying.
I got myself Capt Ron's FearlessFlight Kit and started listening to it.
I wanted to visit my family back East as well as my in-laws, so I thought that attending the Cleared for Takeoff 201 Class in the morning and flying with Capt Ron and a group of like-minded people would be very beneficial for me.
And it truly was!
During class, something inside of me shifted and I now feel confident, and even excited, whenever I think about flying.
I am happy to say that my husband and I enjoyed a great honeymoon in Hawaii and that I did extremely well on my flights. I have my life back and my husband and I are planning a vacation to Europe sometime soon.
Thank you Capt Ron and thank you to the FearlessFlight Team who has worked so hard to create a wonderfully engaging, safe and supportive environment during the Cleared for Takeoff 201 and 301 classes.
The Flight Class is designed as a practical next step to follow the Cleared for Takeoff 201 Classes.
Cleared for Takeoff 301 provides the opportunity to apply the tools and strategies that you learned in the Cleared for Takeoff 201.
Capt Ron and the FearlessFlight® Crew are experienced and dedicated to create a safe and supportive environment.
Together with other like-minded fearful flyers powerful and lasting positive experiences and memories are formed that will serve you well, when it is your time to fly by yourself, with family or work colleagues.
Changing the way you think about flying -- like improving your golf swing or tennis serve--is best facilitated by a little learning each day as opposed to a lot at one time.

I am glad you asked! Trust is one of the most important factors when attempting to change beliefs and behaviors. I have been blessed to help people overcome their fear of flying since 1987. Being at this for as long as I have, I am often referred to as an internationally recognized fear of flying expert.
As a recognized authority in human factors and pilot performance, I have had the privilege to design and deliver programs to reduce the likelihood of aviation accidents due to human error. I have served on the Air Transport Association’s Human Factors Subcommittee and have spoken at numerous national conferences on human factors in aviation.
I have devoted most of my adult life exploring learning technologies to understand how adults best learn. My knowledge of people, combined with my knowledge of airplanes, have helped me develop strategies for fearful flyers to successfully manage their fears.
When I am not teaching classes, I a keynote speaker on fear of flying, conflict resolution, performance management, and the paradox of personality. As an aviation industry expert, I have been featured on The Today Show, Weekend Live, NBC’s Nightly News, CSNBC, and MSNBC. I have also been featured in nationally recognized publications like USA Today, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal.
