The programs and instruction being made available by Mindful Aviator are free for aviation professionals all over the world. Simply enter your airline code or the code of the airport where you are based. No personal information required! If you are not an aviation professional, I suggest the free introductory program under the resources section, audio recordings and non-pilot local community.

Please enter 3-digit airline code or home base airport code for access

    Mindful Aviator is not a medical or clinical mental health resource. It is an organization dedicated to making Mindfulness and Meditation practice available in a secular, no-nonsense and useful way for professional pilots. When practiced regularly, Mindfulness and Meditation can help crewmembers reduce stress, improve situational awareness and resilience. It is not a “Cure” for mental illness, anxiety disorders, depression, addiction and so forth. While it is often used in conjunction with traditional treatments and interventions, it is not intended to replace them.

    Confidentiality Guarantee

    Everything on this site is designed to protect your privacy. There is no tracking or recording of information and if you prefer, I don’t even need to know your name. I only ask for your home base or airline code (to access the free recordings) so I can measure interest level and identify potential “problem” airlines. The most we may require from you is an email address if you register for one of our programs. Contact information from all programs or one-on-one consultations will never be shared. This confidentiality cannot extend beyond the control of our website. Your personal computer, device, spyware, browser and user history are your own responsibility.

    As an airline pilot myself, I fully understand the need for privacy and discretion around any subject that might be misperceived as a sign of weakness on the part of a crewmember. Unfortunately, our employers, the FAA, and sometimes even our unions don’t always offer reasonable answers to simple questions about stress management without labeling us as mentally defective or even putting our career at risk.

    If you’re concerned about the reporting requirements around crewmember mental health issues, I recommend you check out the Lift Affect website at for a more complete picture. For my thoughts on confidentiality and disclosure, see the To self-disclose or not, the difficult conversation article in our library.

    Just to be clear, if you simply chose to practice Mindfulness and Meditation then there is no reporting requirement.

    Just because I’m willing to speak publicly about crewmember “wellness” and my own experience with stress doesn’t mean that you need to. In fact, the reason I offer basic introductory material on my website for free is so that you can check it out, on your own, privately without anyone (including me) ever knowing!

    If you find that the free programs and practices are helpful, contact me for a free consultation or consider our more in depth programs.

    At Mindful Aviator, your confidentiality is guaranteed.

    You have our word on that!

    Capt. Carl Eisen, founder of Mindful Aviator
