I don't know of any PLACE to recommend, but any competent shrink, especially one practising Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ) should be able to help him to unlearn this fear fairly promptly. Not long back we had a reader who asked and received this reply, and the next we heard from her, a few weeks later, was from Beijing, China, after she'd had a comfortable and enjoyable flight there !

Get the book from Allen Carr. Not sure about the title. It is something like " The Easy way to overcome fear for flying"
