Abstract:

The objective of the study was to investigate the occupational and domestic sources of pilot mental ill health and performance. Using a psychosocial approach, the major trends and predictive issues were to be identified. These would not only provide extensive information but also form the basis for further research and wider practical application. Relevant background literature was reviewed. It was concluded that whilst a small amount of previous research had been performed relevant to the area of present investigation, it was of only limited practical utility. Comparisons with data derived from other occupations, revealed that equivalent research in pilots was clearly deficient. This was particularly true in the examination of domestic sources of stress. Extensive preliminary interviews were performed to investigate the situations, highlight key issues and to generate items that could be further psychometrically tested in the main study.
