Fearless flying

FRAMINGHAM

Lynne Hagopian, a realtor and interior decorator from Framingham, says she's gotten some extra benefits from a course designed to help people conquer their fear of flying.

Hagopian, who hadn't flown for 27 years, took her graduation flight from Dr. Albert Forgione's Fearless Flying course last month.

Hagopian says in an article in today's Travel section she not only considers the course helpful in making flying possible again, she uses the breathing and relaxation techniques she learned to reduce other, more ``everyday," anxieties -- and physical pain.
