Abstract:

A questionnaire concerning aircrew morale and job-satisfaction was completed by 283 officers and 138 enlisted aircrewmen in three Military Airlift Command Navy squadrons. The stability and predictability of off-duty time, with emphasis on scheduled time off-duty and elimination of wasted time on-duty, were an area of major concern to the Navy aircrewmen. Officers and enlisted men expressed essentially the same attitudes. Responses were generally more moderate than in an earlier study with Air Force aircrewmen. Satisfactions derived from flying apparently attenuated negative feelings to a considerable extent.
