If you’re the type of anxious traveler whose heart skips a beat at the mere thought of boarding a plane, fret no more because a brilliant concept has taken flight thanks to a compassionate group of pilots who began extending 15-minute calls to anxious friends before take-off.

Introducing Dial A Pilot, a service that enables nervous travelers to have valuable conversations with experienced pilots throughout their entire journey, from takeoff to landing. Aiding flyers in overcoming their fears by delving into the intricacies of flight and addressing one question at a time, this service helps to foster a deeper understanding of aviation, ease flight jitters, and instill a sense of reassurance.

Conceived by Kyle, a seasoned airline pilot, Dial A Pilot was inspired by conversations with his sister-in-law about flying. After realizing that anxious travelers needed assistance understanding air travel complexities and a solution to easing their anxieties, Kyle developed the service to address the demand directly.

How does the service work?

It’s simple. Travelers can easily book a session by visiting their website and scheduling a 15-minute call for $50. During the call, you will have the opportunity to engage in conversation with seasoned pilots who have extensive experience in flying different types of aircraft, such as 747s and commuter jets. They are there to address any questions or worries you may have regarding turbulence, potential engine failure during a flight, and more.

So, whether you’re scared of flying or just need someone to talk to about your in-flight snack choices, Dial A Pilot has got you covered to fly with confidence!
