We've made a few tweaks to the Core Aviation Psychology website, and have been analysing our web traffic over the month of August. One of our best months to date as we've had 554 visitors from 52 countries! A lot of these came after our LinkedIn post about support programmes for aerospace engineers, something we'll be speaking about at the CIEHF conference this November.
We are pleased that Christine Farrell has become associated with Core Aviation Psychology. She brings extensive experience as both a commercial helicopter pilot and an organisational psychologist, and strengenths our unrivalled capability in providing psychological services to the rotary-wing sector.
The recent initiatives on pilot mental health are welcome, and there is a need for similar approaches to the mental health and wellbeing of the real heroes of aviation - the engineers. Please read our paper on ourwebsite Information page.

We are pleased to say that Paul Dickens will be presenting at the Human Factors in Aviation Safety event hosted by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors, taking place at LGW on the 13th and 14th November. The topic will be Big 5 personality factors and safety in aerospace engineers.
