Abstract:

Naval flight officer candidate attrition in undergraduate training has increased from a low of 20 percent in the early 1960s to 40 percent within the last five years. One means of reducing attrition is to increase the efficiency of the Naval and Marine Aviation Selection Test Battery used to select candidates for the various naval flight officer aviation training programs. The scoring key for the Biographic Inventory developed for a pilot population is currently being used to select both aviators and naval flight officers into naval aviation training programs. Research personnel at the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory reasoned that a scoring key developed specifically for the NFO subject population might increase the efficiency of the Biographical Inventory selection test. The present report represents an evaluation of a Biographical Inventory specifically keyed for a naval flight officer population.
