Aviation and aerospace psychology: pilot mental health and wellbeing

07 December 2017

This position paper gives a psychological perspective on the unique working environment and conditions of airline pilots and discusses factors which may increase the risk of developing mental health conditions.

Aviation personnel work in a unique environment and endure a range of different stressors, which may place them at increased risk of developing a mental health condition.

It is therefore crucial that their mental health is evaluated on a regular basis and that educational programmes and treatment/intervention options are readily available to all.
