The Aviation Industry just changed forever...

Almost overnight, the industry has gone into free fall and airlines have carried out large scale, unprecedented cut backs. Here's the truth:

  • Thousands of pilots will be made redundant in the coming months

  • Most won't find reemployment in the cockpit for at least 3 years

  • The actions you take right now will dictate whether you just survive or thrive

  • This is the new reality whether you want to deal with it or not

A program just for pilots...

The Pilot Realignment Program is a 4 month program to help you navigate this downturn in the most powerful way possible.

  • Regain Control

    New Online trainings released every week help you get back in control of your career and your life. We currently have over 40 trainings that cover personality, strength finders, finances and cashflow, family support, stress and anxiety, physical and mental health, sleep optimisation and more.

  • Get to know yourself

    Gain deep insights into your own personality, unique skills and talents. Most importantly, you'll see how your pilot skills can be transferred into other industries. By the end of the program, you'll know yourself better than you ever thought possible.

  • Generate New Opportunities

    You probably still want to fly again but it may not be possible for a while. Whether you want to launch a side business or discover a new career to get through this crisis, we'll support you in generating new ideas and opportunities, tailored just for you.

  • Weekly Crew Briefing Calls

    Every week, the Cockpit Coaches will be supporting and guiding you through the program on our Crew Briefing Calls. You'll have the opportunity to get supported around your specific situation each and every week. All calls are private and confidential.

  • Case Studies

    Weekly interviews with pilots who have created a wide range of different opportunities outside the cockpit as well as industry experts sharing their expertise on relationships, finance and career.

  • Worldwide Pilot Community

    Join our community of pilots from all over the world who are also navigating the unique challenges of this unprecedented situation. You'll be assigned an accountability partner to ensure you get the most out of this program.

Converting your Potential into Performance

  • Transform your experience of life. One of our mantras at Cockpit Coaches is "From the most challenging times come the biggest opportunities". Working with us, you'll see that life can be more enjoyable, free and fulfilling experience not just a constant struggle, endless bad rosters and deep feelings of fatigue. (Value: priceless!)

  • If you choose to create a new side hustle or business, we'll help you find and develop your new business idea based on your uniques skills and experiences. You'll also learn the mindsets required to successfully transition from Pilot to Entrepreneur. By the end of the program, you will have started your business and have the first client in the door. (Value: priceless!)

  • If you'd like to explore a new career or position outside the cockpit, you'll work with us to discover exactly what careers are a great fit for you. You'll work with our partners to explore continued education options or find a new placement. (Value: priceless!)

  • Over the 4 months program period, you will have access to 16 group calls, held weekly. These calls are designed to support your progress through the program, transforming your personal vision into reality as well as establishing accountability. (Value $2400)

  • On top of the group coaching calls, you will have two individual sessions with one of the Cockpit Coaches. The first 1-on-1 call will be scheduled right before you are deciding upon your key focus area during the program: Establishing a new career path or starting your own business. This way, it will be assured that you are "climbing the right mountain”. The second call is placed at the beginning of your last month of the program, the execution phase. This call will focus on having the right strategy in place for you to transform your vision into reality. (Value $1000)

  • It is time to wave goodbye to your pilot focussed career marketing documents (CV, Cover Letter, LinkedIn Profile etc.). Together with our expert on transferable skills and career transitions, you will craft your personal career narrative through a focussed and intense one-on-one session. Creating an effective career story will help you to stand out from the crowd and position your transferable skills to future employers and recruiters. (Value $350)

  • As part of the program you will have a personal coaching session that will identify your "inner autopilot mode" that drives everything you do. This "master mode" can be seen as your greatest gift. That's why you use it so frequently and it becomes your "master fault" at the same time. This energy, like a prevailing wind that bends a tree permanently, sculpts your inner map and shapes your entire life. Our coach - who knows this map - can help you navigate into new areas of personal freedom. (Value $150)

  • The Cockpit Coaches are constantly engaging with organizations worldwide to place our program graduates in corporate positions that match the transferable skills as well as the individual strengths of the pilots graduating from our program. (Value: priceless!)

Tom Schouten - Pilot turned Web Developer

"After being furloughed, the course really helped me to create structure in my day-to-day life, which in turn made me more calm and focused on the task at hand"

Testimonials from fellow pilots...

"During the first weeks of redundancy , the regular calls were an enormous anchor to my week"

Kit Alexander, Former 737 Flight Intstructor

"I Have found Cockpit Coaches to be a huge support during a difficult time and an excellent self development course that offers heaps for people wanting to achieve different things. Especially during the first weeks of redundancy , the regular calls were an enormous anchor to my week and helped me find structure and direction for my new future. They have shown me many ways to develop myself, while clarifying what I want to aim for in my future, for myself and family. I have been shown how to prioritise my time to achieve these goals. I would highly recommend Cockpit Coaches for both an initial structure for yourself, and then for the wealth of development that they offer, for your personal or business ideas"

"Highly recommended"

Daniella Murray, Former 787 Pilot

"This program has and continues to give me the foundation for personal and professional growth. Before this course, I believed that my skills were only suited to a particular industry. However, through this course I have discovered that I have so many transferable skills and, more importantly, I am learning so much about who I truly am as an individual. I am genuinely excited about where my life will lead next! I have made great connections, some of whom I am now happy to call friends and we continue to support each other beyond the programme. It is an incredibly safe space and it has given me the confidence to share my challenges and achievements. Highly recommended"

"Martin and Nathan’s challenges supported me in shifting my perspective"

Tom Schouten, Former 737 Pilot

"After being furloughed, the course really helped me to create structure in my day-to-day life, which in turn made me more calm and focused on the task at hand. Martin and Nathan’s challenges supported me in shifting my perspective and breaking down the boundaries that were holding me back. During the weekly briefing calls it quickly becomes clear that it is a nice community that supports each other to help you achieve your goal"

"Immediately made me feel more in-control of my new situation"

Andrew Fisher, Former 737 Flight Examiner

"The loss of my job had a huge impact on me and my family. Those first days and weeks after redundancy were a real emotional roller-coaster. This is the point that Cockpit Coaches really helped by providing direction and motivation during this extremely confusing experience. The first modules had immediate actions to prepare for being unemployed, and immediately made me feel more in-control of my new situation. Having that sense of community amongst the other pilots in my group was vital during this isolating time. The modules progress in an extremely logical way, and address issues clearly and intelligently. I found the modules regarding family issues and and children following job loss especially insightful and valuable"

"I feel empowered to walk the path I am walking“

Alistair Slee, Former 737 Pilot

I have found Cockpit Coaches to be everything I have needed in my current situation of airline redundancy. The course has given me the opportunity to connect with colleagues in the same position and understand everything I am experiencing is normal. I have had the guidance to check my own well-being in personal and financial matters and help in looking at opportunities ahead. I feel empowered to walk the path I am walking, to say "no" to anything that doesn't resonate within me, no matter how badly my logical brain is screaming the complete opposite! Cockpit Coaches has helped me to hold a mirror up to my current career and make choices that serve me in the future.

"...a must for any pilot who is considering becoming more than what they were"

Mike Kenyon, Former 737 Captain

“I started the Cockpit Coaches program while the ashes of my 737 job were still glowing. As a person who others had relied on during the ‘consultation’ around our jobs, I felt that I was stoic and focused enough to do ok, to push ahead, and to find a friendly holding pattern while I waited for the storm to pass. Enrolling in the program did not feel like something I needed, more of a fact-finding mission while we were in lockdown here in New Zealand. The reality was so different. What the Cockpit Coaches course has given me is a focus on what matters, and helped me to identify where my passion and expertise can make a difference in business and at home. The content of the course, coupled with the support and passion that Nathan and Martin put into every coaching call (a highlight of my week) make this a must for any pilot who is considering becoming more than what they were”

"...making the best of the worst"

Mark Glover, A320 Pilot

"There is no way to explain the changes earlier this year that have occurred, going from a stable job in a stable world to complete uncertainty in an industry that has become decimated by the global pandemic. It has been hard to swallow leaving emotions that have ranged from sadness to anger and everything in-between. Nathan and his team have given me the ability to see the situation from a different angle while also seeing my personal attributes strengths and weakness’s and how those will apply in a possible new future. Its given me and my family a sense of making the best of the worst and the ability to use it as an opportunity"

“Prepare for new challenges and dare the unexpected”

Anonymous 767 Pilot

"The coaching from Martin and Nathan is authentic, honest and motivating. The course gave me valuable tools for my personal growth and development. Cockpit Coaches support me to learn for life, to be prepared for new challenges and encourage me to dare the unexpected!"

  • Is this like counselling or therapy?

    Our program is very different from counselling or therapy. There are a couple of fundamental differences. Firstly, we assume that all of the answers are within you. While we may offer different points of view or ideas to challenge your thinking, our the primary job is to support you in finding your own answers. This is a partnership. Secondly, our program focusses on creating a better future. How to get you from A to B. Therapy may be more focussed in the past, helping you to heal any trauma and pain that might be impacting you. Remember, no athlete ever made it to the Olympics without a coach. Receiving powerful support is not a sign that something is wrong with you or that you need help, but that you are committed to getting world class support to reach your goals.
