Capt Ron,

I miss you and your wonderful class. I am very proud to say that I had a great flight just last month. I was by myself with my baby!! I "channeled" you through it all and it was awesome!

Thank you and keep doing what you are doing! 

Anna Rachel

Formerly Fearful Flyer

I hadn't flown in 28 years. I found capt Ron and went to both classes.

I still can't believe how life-changing this has been for me. Have been flying ever since. I missed many family functions before Capt Ron. Thank you!

  • Are you afraid to fly?

    Is just the thought of getting on an airplane elevating your blood pressure and stress levels?

    Are you missing out on job opportunities, vacations or important family events because Your fear of flying is keeping you grounded?

     

    What if there was a class that you can attend which is taught by a 40 year veteran pilot and someone who holds a master’s degree in Professional Clinical Counselling and someone who has worked with thousands of Fearful Flyers just like you, for the past 29+ years?

     

    Even better, what if that class was taught in a large Air Hollywood studio that had everything from a replica gate, a security checkpoint, a jetway and a life size airplane mock-up that can even simulate turbulence – all so that when you are in class, you will fully experience all aspects of flying, without flying…yet.

  • Introducing Cleared for Takeoff 101 - California Edition

    Today I am here to tell you that this class, finally, exists – for you!

     

    Not only will I be able to walk you, step by step, from the Ticket counter, through security, to the gate, all the way into a life size airplane mock-up, but you will even be able to experience what fearful flyers all over the world usually have the most anxiety about -  Turbulence!

     

    Let me tell you, there is no better class to overcome your fear of flying anywhere in the country or the world. Period

  • Take it to the next level!

    If you feel that you are ready and up for it, you will even have the option to board a real Southwest Airlines flight, right after class, with me!

     

    That’s right, we will be flying together and I will be with you in the cabin of the airplane, the whole time!

     

    From getting to the airport, to going through all the steps that we covered in in class to taking flight to our chosen destination and back together. You will have access to me even during the flights and I will be right there with you, answering all your questions and helping you stay focused on what you need to do to have a great and fearless flight!

  • The most Effective Fear of Flying Class!

    I have been dreaming about putting a class like this together for a long time – and if you have been dreaming about, one day, overcome your fear of flying, then this your day, and this is Your class!

Capt Ron Nielsen

Known as Capt Ron to many thousands of fearful flyers he has helped since 1987, he is an internationally recognized fear of flying expert. Growing up in rural Indiana, since second grade, he longed to become a pilot and “rise above” those “surly bonds” of earthly existence. An Air Force Academy graduate with a tour in Vietnam, Captain Ron Nielsen accumulated over 16,000 hours during his career as a commercial pilot flying a Boeing 737. 

 

As a recognized authority in human factors and pilot performance, Ron designed and delivered programs to reduce the likelihood of aviation accidents due to human error. He served on the Air Transport Association’s Human Factors Subcommittee and has spoken at numerous national conferences on human factors in aviation. 

 

His love of aviation and curiosity about the role of psychology in pilot performance led him to an M.A. in Professional Counseling and a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Human Resources.  Ron has devoted most of his adult life exploring learning technologies to understand how adults best learn.

 

Captain Ron is also the author and creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul Presents The FearlessFlight Kit®. He is a keynote speaker on fear of flying, conflict resolution, performance management, and the paradox of personality. As an aviation industry expert, he has been featured on The Today Show, Weekend Live, NBC’s Nightly News, CSNBC, and MSNBC.

 

He has also been featured in nationally recognized publications like USA Today, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal.
