Abstract : This report reviews the events which led to the adoption of the Weighted Airman Promotion System (WAPS) and its stated objectives, and examines several promotion cycles and the manner in which the WAPS factors interact to make promotion selections. It also reports on field research conducted to determine if there is discrimination within the Airman Performance Report beyond WAPS' capability for data capture, and concludes that a revalidation of WAPS, similar to its original field test, is overdue.
