For this initiative, the Pilot Candidate Selection Method PCSM, which combines several personnel tests weighted to optimally predict pilot training outcomes such as attrition and final course grades, was re-evaluated using updated training data to determine if it is still the most salient predictor of pilot training outcomes out of the available pilot-selection tests within the United States Air Force USAF. Results suggest that it continues to be a strong predictor of success in completing Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training SUPT, as well as other important pilot training outcomes.
