AntiSkid

Reducing pressure before the wheels are blocked

Every pilot knows what we are talking about: sometimes a wet runway with 2 km left is quite too short for a safe landing. On your car the ABS helps you to brake, on plane there is the A/S. But who will help a pilot if he has one’s troubles and the load to stay in those limiting red lines of licence law gets too heavy to carry on? Who will take off the pressure then?

 

 

We took up the cause to the maxim: peers are helping peers. So we support colleagues who are concerning about their psychological fitness to fly. But it is not only the person affected who worry, often his relatives and intimates do so as well and are looking for a competent person of contact.

 

Together with specialised therapists, physicians and clinics we give advise and support to persons looking for help. We are there for you 24/7 and, if you would appreciate, with anonymous state.

We conciliate fast the right measure and the adjusted dose of professional help needed, in every single case, without any red-tape and absolutely confidential.

 

 

Our targets are:

 

  • to maintain the health of the peer
  • to preserve the licence and the job
  • to solve mutually problems in everyday life (private ones and those occurred “inflight”)
  • and in addition: to keep the highest-possible confidentiality

To whom is our help aimed to?

Psychological burdens – also drug or alcohol addictions - often lead to further problems in your privacy and on your official business. If everyday difficulties of flight duty come additionally on top, your personal limit to handle those circumstances can be achieved much more quickly. In this case our network AntiSkid can releive all parties affected and –if requested- give advice / support to their families and friends as well.

Why AntiSkid?

„Red Lines” of licence law are clearly known and have to be obeyed from every single one of us, self-reliantly, of course. Otherwise loss of licence imminents, unattached by any knowledge of your AME. In that case, lawmakers intend you as “unfit to fly” for several years, which is highly existence-threatening.
And only well-defined and complicated paths of treatment enables the person affected to regain the licence.

 

 

As alternate - to participate in the AntiSkid programme will offer you the opportunity to get back “on the line”, quickly and legally. We don’t use tricks, we are no magicians – but our treatment offer does meet every authorities’ requirements which is needed to regain the licence.
For more than 30 years now, we are simply working together with every department involved and this in deep confidence. It enables us using the “short official channels” to find elegant solutions for nearly “daily occurred problems”.

But what does that mean “daily”? Do those problems occur really every day? Yes, in Germany, in every year 27.8 % of the adults are suffering from psychological diseases (est. 2017). But even how beautiful life above all clouds is – we aviators are as well a part of the adult population!


Mutual trust, profession and fair treatment with peers are the base of the AntiSkid programme. We accompany the colleagues affected throughout a hard time and support them on their way. But as it is said on plane: YOU have control. AntiSkid does not replace the pilot’s decision to use the brake. AntiSkid might help, that a wet runway with 2 km left could be long enough for a safe landing.
