USAIR FEARFUL FLYERS CLASS RETURNING TO CHARLOTTE

 CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The successful, award- winning USAir Fearful Flyers Class will be offered again at Charlotte/Douglas International Airport, beginning April 29.
 During the three hour classes, which meet seven consecutive Thursday evenings, participants will learn about aviation and stress management techniques to overcome their aviaphobia. The class will end June 10, with a one-hour graduation flight where each student can bring a guest.
 Clinical social worker Carol Stauffer and 40-year veteran pilot Capt. Frank Petee, USAir's director-special projects and co-pilot on USAir's first passenger flight in 1949, provide students professional expertise and instruction.
 USAir's Fearful Flyers Program was developed in 1975 as a result of the number of people who are afraid of flying. Boeing Aircraft Corporation estimates that one out of every six Americans is afraid of flying.
 Since the program's inception, over 3,000 participants have enrolled in the course and 97 percent have successfully overcome their phobia. Classes have been held in numerous cities throughout the United States, including Charlotte.
 Anyone interested in taking the course should contact USAir at 412-366-8112 or USAir's local sales office in Charlotte at 704-552-9909.
