Scared of flying? Get an iPhone or Touch and have a 98% chance of watching your fears just fly away.
Virgin Atlantic is launching an app for the iPhone for its Flying Without Fear course which, apparently, has a success rate of just 2% short of total.
According to Yahoo Tech:
Virgin developed the app with Mental Workout, a company developing software to help people resolve issues and increase mental performance. A spokesman from Mental Workout said an estimated one in every three adults were scared of flying.
The airline said in a statement that this app was designed to help people overcome fear, be it of the unfamiliar aircraft, the strange noises a plane makes, or of losing control.
The Flying Without Fear app has an introduction by Branson, a video-based in-flight explanation of a flight, frequently asked questions, relaxation exercises and a fear attack button for emergencies with breathing exercises.
Now, if they’d just find a way to allow iPhones to operate during take-offs we’d be guaranteed an entirely fearless flight.
