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. Put simple, it is my mission and passion to help people overcome their fear of flying.
