The Naval aviation community is faced with the problem of retaining its officers in sufficient numbers to meet its requirements for officers with more than 10 years of experience. This research followed aviators who had resigned from the Navy between 1982 and 1986. In general, the officers were satisfied with their decision and thought very highly of many facets of their naval experience. However, their impressions of the amount of paperwork, crisis management, detailers, work hours, and sea duty were unfavorable with the impressions of the first two factors becoming even worse in comparison with their civilian experience. It is recommended that detailing and assignments be separated on the Officer Separation Questionnaire and realistic preparation for nonflying duties be initiated early in flight training.
