About the survey

You are invited to participate in an anonymous online survey concerning the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on aviation workers and the aviation system.

The survey asks questions about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the wellbeing, employment, and safety behaviour of aviation professionals. It also looks at self-care practices, work related change, and the requirements for support for aviation professionals both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This research is conducted by researchers at the Centre for Innovative Human Systems (CIHS), Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. It is independent and autonomous and is not linked to any airline, aviation staff representative group or the regulator.

Benefits of taking part

Participating in this research will lead to benefits at three levels – (1) individual, (2) aviation community level and (3) societal level. In relation to aviation staff as individuals, completing this survey should help to generate self-awareness around wellbeing issues associated with the recent COVID crisis. For some, it may help to normalise mental health/wellness issues that you are currently experiencing arising from COVID. No staff group within aviation are immune to mental health issues.  

In relation to the pilot community, this research will help raise awareness about issues surrounding the COVID and its impact on wellbeing within aviation. At a societal level, this will support a better understanding of how different workers are being impacted by the COVID pandemic. There is also a societal interest in measuring the effects of COVID on aviation workers, to support their return to work and flight safety.
