The workshop is primarily aimed at
- Fatigue Risk Managers
- HR managers of CAT-Operators, ,
- AMEs (Aeromedical Examiners)
- Selection- and aviation-psychologists,
- physicians, psychiatrists,
- safety managers, crew planners,
- CAA staff involved in Air OPS, Part-ARO, Part-CAT Air OPS, Part-MED
The starting point for this is understanding what makes being a pilot unique - pilots have no office, work shifts, are required to undertake multiple tasks at 35,000 feet, and are frequently absent from home and their regular social support. They are constantly checked in the course of their duties or in simulators and they are subjected to scrupulous monitoring of every action.
This workshop aims to equip participants with the relevant concepts, underpinning research and skills to begin working with pilots and other occupational groups in aviation. It covers six broad topics:
- The work and personal lives of pilots and cabin crew
- Pilot medical licensing requirements, with an emphasis on psychological, psychiatric and neurological exclusions
- Common mental health problems among pilots
- Psychological assessment and reporting on findings from aptitude, mental health, personality and neuropsychological tests
- Adapting psychological interventions for aircrew
- An overview of the psychology of human factors and air safety and disaster support.
