The report is one of the series of studies attempting to identify factors contributing to aircraft accidents incurred by officer students in the Basic Training Command during Fiscal 1951. Accident data were analyzed to determine whether or not the student officers who commuted eighty miles daily to and from Pensacola to Whiting Field sustained a larger number of accidents than those officers who resided at or close to Whiting Field during their early phases of flight training. An analysis of the data indicated that there were no significant differences in the number of accidents sustained by the officer students who commuted from Pensacola each day and those who lived at Whiting Field and had no such travel problem.
