Mataki Group, the newly established air wellness company, has partnered with SkyLights to add its fear-of-flying relaxation videos to its Allosky VR Inflight Entertainment (IFE) catalogue. Guided by airline pilot and flight-phobia expert Mathieu Leroy, the videos walk passengers through a program specifically designed to counter flying anxieties felt by a reported 43% of passengers.
In the videos, Mathieu Leroy (pictured left) an aircraft pilot and flight-phobia expert, draws on human factor and neuroscience techniques to put passengers at ease during their flight and educate them about flying, turbulence and flight safety.
“The conscious brain processes around seven pieces of information every second, the majority of which comes from visual stimuli with audio coming in a close second. Thanks to the immersive environment created by SkyLights’ Allosky headset coupled with noise-cancelling headphones we have the fantastic opportunity to leverage all of this sensory input to diffuse flight anxieties in a highly effective way,” said Mathieu Leroy, Mataki Group’s CEO.
“Leveraging the immersive capacity of the Allosky headset to help passengers escape the cabin and relieve their flight phobia makes all the sense in the world. Mataki Group’s content will improve the flying experience for so many people and we are delighted to make it part of our new air wellness category,” said David Dicko, SkyLights’ CEO.
