Abstract:

There were 29 80 subjects from a squadron of 36 F-16 pilots who voluntarily participated in a newly developed anonymous, self-administered, computerized testing protocol. The test battery consisted of two 2.5-h blocks that gathered demographic information and measured personality MMPI-2, cognitive capacity MAB, crew coordination skills PCI, and history of psychiatric diagnoses C-DIS. The test battery also included a peer rating survey that collected information about the squadrons top performers and their personal qualities. Results indicated that aviators can agree who are top performers and what personal qualities are important in top performers. This pilot project demonstrated the success of the battery to gather aircrew information in a field location. Test data are presented.
