Abstract:

On the basis of a questionnaire administered to the midshipmen at the beginning and again at the end of their cruises it was shown that 1 the students knowledge about and interest in aviation increased 2 there was a significant increase after the cruise in the number who planned to enter aviation after graduation 3 a strong desire to fly was the principal reason for entering aviation while not-physically-qualified and going-subs were the main reasons for not choosing aviation and 4 about 93 of the students expressed favorable attitudes toward the cruise experience itself. The findings were favorable and support the continuance of the cruises. Author
