We publish a newsletter several times a year to keep the membership informed of issues and events. We promote the International Journal of Aerospace Psychology, and several members of the editorial board are affiliated with AAP. All members receive access to the journal and are encouraged to publish and disseminate it.
Each year we hold an annual business meeting as well as unofficial gatherings at relevant academic and professional conferences. This meeting is usually held during the week of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society Annual Meeting, in the same city as that meeting. In April or May of odd numbered years most association members attend the International Symposium on Aviation Psychology, organized by Wright State University. Attendance typically includes academics, practitioners, and researchers from around the globe. May 2019 is the next ISAP meeting.
The association provides assistance for student attendance at the International Symposium on Aviation Psychology.
Application of Psychological Principles to Aviation Safety and Welfare
Our members work in a diverse range of aviation fields, including flight-deck design, pilot selection and training, aviation safety research, maintenance human factors, cabin safety, air traffic control, and accident investigation.
The Association President is elected annually, with elections held in September. The President appoints the executive Secretary/Treasurer, the Newsletter Editor and the Webmaster/Communications Director.
