Several of us in the aviation community have talked about our struggles to get back into the cockpit after a crash. Other pilots have agreed that a support group to encourage a pilot’s healing and his or her return to flying could be a good idea. It will be up to you, the site visitor, to determine if our premise is correct.
This site will be updated and expanded as feedback from visitors has been received. This is certainly a “start-up” effort!
Do you have a story about your own journey back to the cockpit after an accident? Would you be willing to share your experience? If so, please send it to us at: BackToTheCockpit@gmail.com. If you wish to remain anonymous, we understand and will honor your request.
Do you know someone who is working through the process of returning to flying after an incident? Please encourage him or her to get involved with us.
Are you aware of a good resource for helping a pilot return? Please share that with us as well.
Our goal is to have an open forum at Oshkosh 2016. We hope to see you there!
