Abstract:

The thesis introduces exploratory data analysis methods into the question of categorizing pilots and relating these categories to accident potential. The usually recorded flight data deal with the pilots total flight experience, recency, and frequency of flying. The purpose of categorizing is to determine if the recorded flight data could help discriminate between two original sample groups of fifty pilots each, those pilots with accidents during FY73 and those without. The technique of linear discriminant analysis indicated that there is significant difference in the mean vectors of flight data for the two groups.
