Abstract:

Two tests of psychomotor ability hand-eye coordination previously developed by the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory were validated against USAF Undergraduate Pilot Training UPT performance. The two tests significantly predicted UPT eliminations and differentiated between psychomotor tests were evaluated, including using the tests by themselves as an additional selection gate and combining the scores from the tests with other normally available selection information. The combined approach proved most accurate, and three Integrate Pilot Candidate Selection Models IPCSMs were developed using combinations of the psychomotor tests, Air Force Officer Qualifying Test scores, grades from the Flight Screening Program and biographical data. Comparisons among the IPCSMs were made and recommendations for implementation were presented.
