Reviews

Reviewer: VALK Foundation, Netherlands
Review: “This Italian ‘Fear of Flying’ app, the 'Volare’ app, is based on a scientifically-proven treatment method. It is not therapy.”

Reviewer: StopFear, Italy
Review: “Aims to provide a general set of effective tools for managing the fear of flying, based on the latest techniques for treating specific phobias of the situational type. Has a psychoeducational information area on fear of flying, a flight area (a series of 3D videos, with the person following a structured path of virtual-exposure therapy), a relaxation area, with four virtual environments to practice relaxing practice, and a panic button that can be engaged in any ‘emergency’ when the person feels that their fear is increasing, and they are no longer able to maintain control.”
