Abstract : Three different measures of helicopter pilot performance were correlated--two types of computer scores and one type of safety/instructor pilot grades. Results indicated the two types of computer scores were basically interchangeable. The direction of the relationship between the different types of computer and safety-pilot measures was as expected for 76 percent of the measures examined, but statistical significance was attained in fewer cases (approximately 50 percent of the total). Reasons for any noted discrepancies are discussed along with findings about the most strongly associated measures. The computer scores and safety-pilot grades were related strongly enough to conclude that they were both accurately measuring the sample type of performance. Pilots, flight performance, computer scoring.
