Pilot-error accidents have dominated accident statistics consistently from the 1940s to the present. Three factors in a personality factor questionnaire showed significant differences between pilot-error accident groups and were used to correctly classify 86 of aviators tested on their previous pilot-error accident involvement. Sixty-six aviators were tested in an attempt to cross-validate the findings reported in the original study. The findings indicate that individual differences in personality characteristics of the aviators hinder identification of traits associated with pilot-error groups.
