Branson greeting you to calm your fears. From Virgin Atlantic's website

Are you afraid of flying? For $4.99 you can download an iPhone app that has a 98% success rate with calming people’s fears. According to a Boeing survey, one of every three Americans is either anxious or afraid to fly.

The iPhone app starts out with an introduction from Richard Branson, president of Virgin Atlantic, trying to calm people’s fears of flying. Then users can learn about the flying process, what to expect, a frequently asked questions section, and even a “Fear Attack” button in case you need quick breathing exercises to calm your nerves.

“Our first iPhone app will bring the benefits of our successful Flying Without Fear course to millions of people around the world who are now using mobile technology to make their lives better,” Branson said.

And don’t take my word for it! Whoopi Goldberg stated, “I was a sceptic. I hadn’t flown in 13 years but after doing their program, I understood that while my fear was real, there were many things I didn’t know or had misinformation about, which they were able to clear up. So what happened? The program works. I now fly. It’s that simple.” And you know if Whoopi can do it, so can you!

Even if you don’t fear flying, you get 2,000 Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles when joining the program, which might be worth the $5 all on its own!

So, I’m not really afraid of flying but if I was I dont see how this would help me. I agree that info is good in calming some fears but knowledge of the process wont solve most peoples fears of being 33 thousand feet in the air. If the engine falls off or a flock of birds hits on take off hearing Branson pimp Virgin isnt going to make me feel any better.

But as a supporter of capatalism it is pretty cool that he can get people to pay $5 for advertising.
