This study investigates how pilots perceive the way inwhich their work and shift patterns may impact upon their personalrelationships. It also examines the way in which pilots cope with frequentlyhaving to form and then put on hold relationships both at home and at work.Three hundred pilots were surveyed by questionnaire to examine the impact ofworking in the airline industry on personal relationships. Participants wererecruited over a 4-year period between 2012 and 2016 on a university’sMaster’s program in Air Transport Management. The qualitative data wereanalysed using thematic analysis (TA). The study found that that partner supportwas key in managing the demands of shift work and that having an understandingpartner was the key to the relationship working. This study is representative ofa single sample of mostly male pilots flying for more than 2 years. Futureresearch may seek to use a more diverse sample.
