Angela Garvey, the visionary behind Navigating Aviation, brings over 30 years of industry experience to this ground-breaking aviation specific counselling and support initiative. As a grassroots general aviation business owner/operator, commercial pilot, airshow display pilot, and specialist aviation counsellor, Angela's street credibility in the industry is unmatched. Her visible, proactive, and strong advocacy for change makes her the ideal leader to support people and businesses in aviation.  


At Navigating Aviation, we prioritise the confidentiality of our service. Our mission is to provide professional counselling, guidance and support to the aviation community, offering a safe space where members and their families can openly discuss workplace matters, mental health, incident management, and more without the fear of judgement.​

The aviation industry is a complex array of regulations, procedures, stress, and personalities. Whether you're a pilot, small-business owner, aircraft engineer, family member, or supporting crew member, you will be exposed to its nuanced complexities daily.​

Connect with Navigating Aviation to discuss industry-specific concerns such as flight test anxiety, confidence building and crisis support, along with an array of traditional counselling services like relationship and family support, career guidance and work/life balance, to name a few. Navigating Aviation provides the guidance and support you need to help you find your way.
