The aim of the Pilots Advisory Group (PAG) is to offer a listening ear, peer support, and if necessary, to refer the enquiring pilot to specialist assistance in connection with any personal, domestic, medical or professional matter which the enquirer may need assistance. 

 

The PAG programme is available to Singapore Airlines and Silkair pilots, and not restricted to members of ALPA-S. With effect from December 2020, the programme will be available to all Singapore-based pilots.

In 2019, a new PAG logo was created by our very own peer support member. This logo incorporates the following elements:

  • We are volunteer members of ALPA-S.

  • We will provide peer support to enquiring pilots through compassionate listening.

  • We can assist in and support the plan to enable him/her to recover safely and soar to the skies again.

RESPECT

PAG is a group of pilots from all ranks and aircraft types. Each one is a volunteer who is committed to supporting the well-being of fellow crew members.

CARE

Pilots may experience personal difficulties with emotional or medical issues, workplace or family conflicts, professional or financial stress. Should the need arise for a lending ear in a caring and neutral manner, PAG is here for you.

CONFIDENTIALITY

PAG team members undertake training in peer support which emphasises reflective listening in an informal environment that is secure. Its strict commitment to confidentiality means that names and details remain between you and the peer supporter.

PAG remains an important platform where volunteer pilots are professionally trained and clinically supervised to assist fellow colleagues who are experiencing difficult times. It is a caring support outreach by the pilots, for the pilots

Dr Francis Heng

Former Director/Clinical Advisor of SAF Counselling Centre

Every crisis is both a danger and an opportunity. You cannot alter the precipitating event but you can influence the outcome. Think positive, and you will find yourself an opportunity for self-growth, learning and resilience building.

HISTORY OF PAG

Formed in the late 1990s by ALPA-S, the Pilot's Advisory Group (PAG) is an independent formalised body that provides caring and confidential peer support to all pilots, including non-union members. The positioning of PAG as an independent body essentially allows for a non-industrial and non-political peer support team.
