Captain Ron Nielsen has been a pilot for almost 40 years and a captain for a major airline during half that time. Because of the Age 60 Rule that calls for mandatory retirement of pilots, he was “locked out of the cockpit” on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Flying was always his passion; now he devotes much of his time and energy to helping other people be able to fly. He is frequently contacted by the media for his aviation expertise.
Having been involved with fearful flyers since 1987, he has gained a unique understanding of fearful flyers and their fear. He has his master’s degree in professional counseling, so connecting with people and helping them give him a great deal of satisfaction. His knowledge of people combined with his knowledge of airplanes have helped him develop strategies for fearful flyers to successfully manage their fears. Through his live classes and webinars, he has restored confidence to thousands who are now flying again.
Captain Ron is also the author and creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul Presents The Fearless FlightKit™. An engaging speaker and presenter, he is available for speaking engagements. To inquire about his availability, please contact us at email@example.com.
