Anti-stress cursus
A workshop to learn all about air travel, meet the crew and learn why the safest means of travel is by air.
Stress-free flying

The "Stress-free flying" workshop includes:
- An interview with a flight stress specialist.
- A course to familiarize you with aircrafts.
- A session in a flight simulator
- Information to the crew on your next flight.

  • An individual meeting with a stress specialist
    - Before the workshop, on the day of your choice, you will have a personal meeting with a stress specialist. Your relationship to flying will be analyzed, and a strategy to improve it will be laid out.
    - It is essential to determine the origin and nature of the anxiety that flying causes in you. Everyone feels some stress, but intensity and causes vary - the flight-stress specialist will help you understand your anxiety more clearly.

  • A theoretical class on stress and aeronautics
    Each session will bring together four trainees, a flight-stress specialist, and a commercial pilot:
    - Isabelle David will outline the theory and basics of stress management.
    - The pilot will give you a basic introduction to aerodynamics and aeronautics.
    This is a privileged moment of encounter and exchange with flight professionals, as they take the time to listen to you, and help you overcome your fear of flying.

  • A session in a flight simulator
    In a simulator, an exact replica of a real cockpit, you will be piloting an aircraft and managing a full range of in-flight conditions (turbulences, mechanical incidents, emergency procedures, etc.).
    This session will take place after the theoretical course, at the Air France Pilot Training Center in Paray/Orly, near Paris.

  • Informing the crew
    After completing the workshop, recommendations will be made to the crew so that, whenever possible, you will receive a personalized welcome upon your next flight with Air France.
