Are you ready?

From 14 February 2021 EASA regulations come into force requiring all AOCs to provide their pilots access to a (peer) support programme. 

The Centre for Aviation Psychology promotes psychological well-being through confidential access to our specialist psychologists and resources. 

In response to the wake of the German Wings incident and to meet future EASA and FAA directives, the Centre for Aviation Psychology was established in 2016 to support aviation professionals (e.g. pilots, airlines, flight schools, cabin crew, air traffic controllers and AMEs) as they adapt to this new and emerging landscape. 


We know that there are problems to be solved by those in Aviation - and we know that these issues are incredibly sensitive. We believe they require practical delivery with professional expertise. Our teams provide the reassurance you need on both fronts  - we have years of clinical expertise and a track record of delivering large scale, organisation wide interventions.

Over 10K pilots now have confidential access to a network of trained Peer Volunteers through our managed support programmes.
