Abstract. EU Regulation 1042/2018 requires Airlines to implement Support Programmes for flight crews. Research question. We wondered if the application of EU Regulation could encourage flight crews to seek help from peers and psychologists. Method. A multiple-choice questionnaire was developed. Retrieved questionnaires (N=537) were analyzed through Multiple Correspondence and Cluster Analysis. Results. Two factorial dimensions have been highlighted showing participants’ view about the role of psychologists and well-being respectively. Four clusters aggregate responses. Discussion. Data highlight the need to develop a view on well-being and to clarify the benefits of psychologists’ involvement within the organization. Conclusion. The work underlines that the application of the EU Regulation may not be enough to encourage flight crews to request for help.
