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.
