Abstract:

The purpose was to evaluate the flight indoctrination program for NROTC midshipmen conducted during the summer of 1961 at the Naval Air Advanced Training Command. A comparison with findings from 1960 was also made. The evidence reported supports the following conclusions 1 the 1961 NROTC cruises can be considered successful 2 results indicate a more enthusiastic reaction by the 1961 group than by the 1960 group 3 multi-engine aircraft were not popular among the students 4 the career lectures were cited as most beneficial by the students, but the technical curriculum was not considered too worthwhile because of redundancy and 5 the peer rating system in use was extremely unpopular with the students. Recommendations were that 1 an increase in single engine flight time would increase the students enthusiasm, 2 increasing the number of career lectures and decreasing the technical lectures are recommended, and 3 an improvement in the peer rating system is needed.
