Birds of a Feather International is a worldwide network of meetings based on the program of Alcoholics Anonymous*. It was established for pilots and cockpit crewmembers active or inactive in private, commercial or military aviation. BOAF provides AA meetingts worldwide (including ZOOM meetings), a yearly convention, a newsletter and this website for pilots and cockpit crewmembers in recovery.
If you are a pilot or cockpit crewmember in private, commercial, airline or military aviation (or know of someone who is) and need help with an alcohol or drug problem, we are here to assist you. Check out our different webpages and if you have any questions do not hesitate to call any of the phone numbers listed.
*Note: Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion of this website or any of the institutions, programs, procedures or recommendations given herein. This is in keeping with Tradition 10 which states : "Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues, hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy" and Tradition 6 which states in part: "An AA group ought never endorse or lend the AA name lest we are diverted from our primary purpose."

OUR SINGLENESS OF PURPOSE
Birds of a Feather was formed in response to the need for meeting places for pilots and cockpit crewmembers where the subject of addiction to alcohol might be discussed with impunity and anonymity. The cultural bias concerning this subject has prevented many in the past from seeking advice.
Our concern is recovery from alcoholism. We have no loyalties to any company, government institution, medical facility, union, employee assistant program, treatment center or specific recovery program. BOAF has contributed immeasurably to our recovery and the spirit of passing this philosophy on to others who also might benefit is the reason for Birds of a Feather.
Each nest is autonomous and determines its own membership requirements. Go to the NESTS AND CONTACTS page to determine the group conscience of a particular nest.
