Sponsor Spotlight: Australian Aviation Psychology Association (AAvPA)

At the 2023 Singapore Conference on Applied Psychology ‘LIVE’, we are thrilled to partner with industry leaders who share our passion for advancing the field of applied psychology. In this sponsor spotlight, we highlight the Australian Aviation Psychology Association (AAvPA), an esteemed organization that has consistently demonstrated a commitment to driving innovation and collaboration within the realm of psychology.

AAvPA was formed in 1992 by a group of aviation psychologists and pilots, to build a platform for discussion of like-minded professionals and to host the AAvPA symposium, which is held every other year. Since then AAvPA has organised a number of International Symposia and several workshops bringing together academia, human factors practitioners, and aviation professionals. 

Today AAvPA facilitates a professional network within Australia and overseas in the quest to improve aviation safety, through the understanding of human factors. AAvPA is a not-for-profit organisation, whose primary objectives are to: 

“Promote the exchange of information and advancement of knowledge in the fields of aviation psychology and human factors, and to thereby expand their contribution to the safety and efficiency of the aviation industry in the Asia Pacific region.” 

Becoming a member of AAvPA allows you to gain an understanding of the aviation industry and to meet many different aviation professionals. It will also provide you the opportunity to be the first to find out about upcoming conferences, training events, and career opportunities. Being a forum for both academics and practitioners you can contribute to finding integrated practical solutions for existing issues and future challenges, accessing the latest research and publications. 

Membership also includes a subscription to the Journal, ꞌAviation Psychology and Applied Human Factorsꞌ. The journal is accessible to both practitioners and scientific researchers alike, and the contents are broadly divided into original scientific research articles and papers for practitioners. A variety of technical and non-technical aviation articles may be submitted for publication in the Journal allowing you to participate in the current discussions. 

While primarily aviation based, AAvPA actively engages with and encourages participation from a number of other industries including; healthcare, maritime, road and rail, and the oil and gas industries. 

AAvPA welcomes you to get involved and join the Australian Aviation Psychology Association, making lifelong friends that share a passion for promoting the human side of aviation.
