Our Mission

Pilots have never faced this level of disruption and uncertainty. There is also a common misconception that all pilots are wealthy and don’t need help. We want to make sure that they are supported. Our mission is to:

Help them continue to pay back training loans and bills, without suffering economic hardship

Ensure that they don’t suffer on their own, that they have someone with whom they can talk

Help retain the skills they have spent so much in gaining, and learn new ones for the future

Make sure they remain part of our aviation family

Our efforts focus on four areas:

Financial Support

We will provide financial support to formerly employed UK pilots who are facing economic difficulties. With formerly employed pilots now facing uncertain futures, many saddled with significant training debts, we will allocate donations to those who need it most so they can get through this.

Career Support

We will provide a range of practical support, advice and assistance to formerly employed UK pilots to help them navigate through challenges faced. This includes access to job opportunities, sim access and training assistance, career guidance and job application advice.


We will provide mental health and wellbeing support to formerly employed UK pilots who need it. Wellbeing sessions and individual guidance will be provided through our network of peers and professional experts. We will make sure that these pilots continue to feel connected to their community and know that they aren’t alone.


We will also raise awareness of the profession and make sure it continues to be an attractive career path for the next generation. It is critical that this crisis doesn’t deter future pilots from pursuing their dreams – and that we ensure that people from underrepresented groups aren’t deterred by the high financial barriers to entry.

What our colleagues are saying

I want to say a massive thank you to the team at PilotsTogether for their help. They have taken a financial weight off of my shoulders that I am extremely grateful for. Thank you all so much for being so open, honest, and approachable – I appreciate it more than you know.


This is incredible news.  A HUGE heartfelt thank you to all the committee/trustees that have considered and approved my application. I am lost for words.


Thank you so much, this is going to be a huge help in getting back into what we all love and have dedicated so much towards. Without the support from PilotsTogether I wouldn’t be able to maintain my dedication to the career I love and can’t wait to return to. PilotsTogether I am very grateful.


The grant will make a huge difference to my short term position and really relieve a lot of stress that I have been feeling recently regarding finances.  I can not thank the whole of PilotsTogether enough, it really is a a amazing group of people.


Thank you so much for this. The financial pressure at the moment has been causing a lot of anxiety so the availability of these funds takes a lot of weight off my shoulders


The generosity of former colleagues, individuals and the PilotsTogether team have helped me hugely over the last few months.

I simply cannot find the words to express my gratitude but I will be forever thankful for the help I have received. I hope to be teaching people to fly very soon. Thank you to everyone!

I would like to say from the bottom of my heart a sincere THANK YOU to even take time to review my application! I honestly am out of words and I cannot express how grateful I am to make a decision to support me. It is really, really beyond many words to express how much this amount will mean to me and I didn’t expect this at all! It has brought tears into my eyes…
