BAA Training Introduces a Pilot Peer Support Program

Flight Students and Instructors Now Have Access To Peer Support Network

BAA Training has made a program available for its students and instructors that intends to improve psychological well being.The Pilot Peer Support Program now allows for the students and instructors to talk to a trained pilot peer from one of the two airlines, Avion Express and KlasJet. The program allows for a variety of topics to be discussed in a professional way for issues that may be concerning such as training, family or personal issues.

The nature of the program is to help people deal with stress and express themselves to their peers who know how to help because they experience the particularities of the job themselves. The issues that fellow pilots encounter may range from work-related stress factors, such as inflexible schedules, inappropriate workload, conflicts with team members, to personal suffering, such as grief, marital or family difficulties. 

From now on as soon as students start training and flight instructors start working, they have access to the PPSP.

Dragan Ivanovic, Deputy Chief Flight Instructor at BAA Training Spain, says: “Piloting an aircraft puts students in a dynamic environment which they are not used to, so it takes them out of their comfort zone. It might be challenging to remember which tasks need to happen and in which particular order while also managing and mitigating risks and keeping high situational awareness. Therefore, having a point of contact students can refer to if they feel anxious or simply not at their best is very important. This way, they can get back on their feet and keep up with their professional and personal demands.“

Interested parties can fill out a request form on the website and will then be matched with the most suitable and trustworthy match for their situation. The pilot peer will then get in touch with the applicant to arrange a time for them to talk over the phone.
