The holiday season is just around the corner!  That dream holiday with sun-kissed beaches and cool cocktails may be just a short flight away – but for some, the very thought of getting there is more of a nightmare than a dream.

But don’t worry. Help is at hand – come fly with us at MIX 56!

We were delighted to welcome Captain Rod Halloran to our morning studio for a one-hour special ahead of the summer holidays.

You can watch the highlights here or listen again below.

Captain Rod has had a long career in aviation for more than 40 years including having command of the iconic Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet for British Airways.

Rod’s career has taken him long-haul to far flung exotic destinations – and dispite literally hundreds of take-offs and (successful) landings there’s only been the odd aborted take-off and just the one engine failure..

Though flying is one of the saftest ways to travel, many people suffer with Aerophobia – a fear of flying.

In this MIX 56 Special, Smithy chats to Captain Rod about his distinguished career, his family – and answers your questions.
