Pilot Assistance Manual

Apr 10, 2018


This manual is intended to assist pilot member associations to establish and enhance programs to assist pilots and enable operators and regulators to understand the development of these programs in order to endorse the establishment thereof.

Pilot Assistance is an over-arching term given to a basket of peer support programs in which peers are trained as volunteers to support their fellow pilots, offering referral to professional resources when appropriate, while upholding confidentiality protocols.

This manual has been generated by pilot experts with many years’ experience with pilot assistance programs from across the globe. It provides guidance and best practices for establishing and enhancing such programs.
