easyJet Fearless Flying Course Review

I have had a few interesting flights over the years but two in particular have stuck in my mind, resulting in a fear of flying (turbulence). It has had a counterproductive impact on my life, especially my career. When I heard about the latest new easyJet Fearless Flying Course dates for summer 2024, I had to grab the opportunity with both hands and get back to what I know and love most - traveling! Here is what you can expect, learn, and more on the easyJet Fearless Flying Course.

What You Can Expect & Learn on The Easyjet Fearless Flying Course


easyJet’s Fearless Flyer course is divided into three main parts:


  • A virtual ground course, where an easyJet captain explains the unfamiliar sounds and sensations customers feel onboard an aircraft during take off, landing and during times of turbulence. In addition, Lawrence Leyton, a leading expert in the psychology of fear, teaches a unique set of mind techniques to help manage nerves.

  • A pre-flight one-hour ‘Meet the Team’ online Zoom session, where participants will be walked through the airport experience and what to expect. There will also be a participant Q&A session with the Fearless Flyer Team including an easyJet pilot, Lawrence Leyton and Course Director Mark Wein, who shares his tips and advice on how he overcame his own fear of flying many years ago.

  • And lastly, a special one-hour experience flight from the course airport, where customers put their new skills to the test whilst listening to a live commentary of the flight from the Fearless Flyer team.

The airline has over 300 aircraft flying on nearly 1000 routes to more than 155 airports across 35 countries. Over 300 million Europeans live within one hour's drive of an easyJet airport.

In 2022, easyJet published its roadmap to net zero by 2050. The roadmap, which also features a combination of fleet renewal, operational efficiencies, airspace modernisation, Sustainable Aviation Fuel, and carbon removal technology, has set an ambitious interim carbon emissions intensity reduction target of 35% by 2035 which is validated by the Science-based targets initiative (SBTi). The airline’s ultimate aim is to fully transition its fleet to zero carbon emission technology, which it will achieve through a number of strategic partnerships including with Airbus, Rolls-Royce, and GKN Aerospace Solutions. Since 2000, the airline has successfully reduced its carbon emissions per passenger, per kilometre by one-third.

It was a mind-changing experience from the moment I watched the online course! All the questions that I had were answered. As the days went by leading up to the actual flight, I was more excited than nervous. The Fearless Flying Team was brilliant, filling me with confidence, coping strategies, and were really kind throughout the whole experience. I felt in safe hands and can't wait to get on my next flight.


If you are a fearful flyer, I hope you take the opportunity with both hands too. It really will change your life.
