Aspects of flight evaluation data input at the Rotary Wing Department, U.S. Army Aviation School, during 1961-63, were studied with reference to formal quality control system requirements. It was found that significant agreement did exist between instructor and checkpilot evaluations, but that this agreement could be a reflection of information available to the checkpilot prior to the checkride, rather than commonality of instructor and checkpilot standards. Checkride grades were also found to reflect individual checkpilot standards and the students stage of training. Current grading practices were studied to determine the usefulness, for quality control purposes, of the kinds of detailed diagnostic information available on individual student performance. Author
