Abstract : Forty-three experienced fighter pilots from Canada, Norway, and the United States served as subject matter experts (SMEs) in an effort to determine the relative importance of 27 personnel characteristics for fighter pilot performance. Inter-rater reliability estimates indicated an acceptable level of agreement for SMEs within each country and between pairs of countries regarding the relative importance of the 27 characteristics. Because there was sufficient agreement among SMEs from the three countries, the average ranking of the 27 characteristics was calculated. Based on these results, aviation psychologists from Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States reviewed selection instruments currently in use in NATO member countries, to identify the most promising selection instruments for inclusion in a computer-based fighter pilot test battery. Their recommendations are summarized in the paper.
