The aviation industry has been significantly impacted by the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic with operations either ceasing or being greatly reduced and in many cases now resulting in pan-organisational restructuring. Restart activities have commenced to return to commercial flying operations and which will, in time, lead to a re-defined operational ‘normal’. This unparalleled era of change has developed into an unprecedented time of uncertainty and has highlighted the importance and the need to be aware of, and support, the psychological health and mental wellbeing of all aviation related safety sensitive professions. The purpose of this Safety Notice is to enable the industry, under the banner of total system safety, to understand the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the health and wellbeing of all aviation safety sensitive personnel involved in flight operations and the resulting potential human performance risks they should be aware of and should be managing.
