Core Values

Who We Are: Programs


Connecting passionate people across the industry, united in delivering sustainable change



Helping to shape current and future leaders at all organisational levels to put wellbeing best practice into action



Trust, honesty, compassion, responsibility and respect at the core of all that we do

We strongly and sincerely believe that people must be at the very centre of consideration if businesses are to succeed. When employees are valued; when they are respected and supported; when genuine, practical steps are made to secure their mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing; then workforces, businesses and the industry as a whole will flourish.

Our organisation, created by – and for – aviation professionals, unites volunteers from diverse roles across aviation; people who do the jobs and live the life, and understand the specific challenges the sector brings. Whilst unified around the common goal of achieving measurable and sustainable improvements in this safety-critical industry, the aim is to tailor solutions and provide tangible returns to support the employees whose performance delivers the results.
