Abstract:

A recurring problem in naval aviation has been the lack of adequate criteria for pilot performance in fleet-type aircraft. In a previous investigation, an attempt was made to isolate the most critical skills and procedures within each of the stages comprising East Coast replacement air group RAG training in the F-4 aircraft. The present investigation attempted to replicate these findings from the East Coast RAG with data obtained from the West Coast RAG squadron. For each of the stages analyzed in the East Coast RAG squadron, a small set of graded items was selected on the basis that they could adequately discriminate among replacement pilots according to their final RAG grade. The resulting set of items was found to be highly predictive of both the stage grade from which they were obtained and the final RAG grade. Data were obtained from the West Coast RAG squadron in an attempt to replicate these findings. Author
