CIVIL AEROMEDICAL INST OKLAHOMA CITY OKLA
Pagination or Media Count:
Recent ATC attrition rates showed no sex differences in the proportion of trainees who completed FAA Academy training however, the percentage of females who subsequently left ATC work was over twice that of male trainees. In the present study, the 56 females who entered the Academy between December 1968 and November 1970, and who were no longer with the FAA as of June 1972, were matched on several variables with male attritions who had entered the Academy at the same time. Reasons for attrition were obtained from job-exit forms, telephone interviews, and a questionnaire. Modified author abstract
