Virgin Atlantic Airways has got into the act on mobile phone applications with the launch of its “highly acclaimed” Flying Without Fear course as an app for iPhone or iPod.
Virgin says the app, which features an introduction by Richard Branson, is designed to help people cope with the anxiety at the prospect of flying and overcome their personal fears.
The app explains questions that people commonly have like “what happens if all the engines fail” or “what are all the onboard noises”.
It has a video-based explanation of a flight from start to finish, relaxation exercises and fear therapy and a fear attack button for emergencies with breathing exercises.
It’s a nice idea to make this mobile from Virgin, and comes with a small price tag of £2.99 (not sure if there is a US$ or € price?)
Now I want someone to invent an app that can tell you if you are sitting near someone was has this app so you can move seat accordingly.
