Abstract:

In order to ascertain Williams Air Force Base Ips and SPs perceptions concerning cruciality of components of flight instruction and their perceptions regarding areas of instruction in need of improvement, a questionnaire was developed and administered to 82 IPs and 50 SPs. Results revealed that a majority of both groups considered the traffic pattern the most critical component as well as the most difficult to learn. Both groups considered navigation the area of instruction that needed the most improvement. Results also indicated that instruments was a curriculum area that was both critical and in need of improvement. Responses to the questionnaire also led investigators to conclude that future questionnaires designed to elicit the same type of information should be highly structured and specific. Author
