Meet Captain Stacey Chance

Captain of MD-80

As a child I had a fascination with flight which I never outgrew. I was raised in Northern California and still make my home there. I currently fly as a MD-80 Captain for one of the world's largest airlines. At the age of fourteen I started washing planes to earn money for flying lessons. By age nineteen I worked as a flight instructor, ground instructor, and apprentice aircraft mechanic to help pay for college.

Love of Aviation

This project requires a considerable amount of ongoing work. My students help with the costs by making small donations and buying my DVD, book, and audio CD, but my greatest reward is reading success stories of people who can now enjoy the benefits and freedom that air travel offers. I have developed this course entirely on my own. I am not sponsored by, nor do I do make claims or recommendations with regards to any airline. I would like to share my aviation expertise. My Fear of Flying Help Course has helped many people feel better about flying. I truly believe it can help you! I am NOT a licensed therapist or counselor. If you have a serious underlying problem in your life that may be a contributing factor in your fear of flying, I ask that you seek professional help. This course is not a substitute for professional therapy or counseling.
