Abstract:

The current version of the Armys Flight Aptitude Selection Test FAST is aging and its predictive validity has declined substantially since it was first implemented. An analysis of existing records was performed to a determine the impact of the FASTs declining predictive validity on aviator trained eliminations and setbacks, and b estimate the benefits of increasing the FAST cut-score from its present value of 90. The analysis focused on the eliminations and setbacks that occurred during the period between January 1, 1989, and December 31, 1995. Detailed data are presented on a the annual number and costs of eliminations and setbacks, b the causes of eliminations and setbacks, and c the estimated consequences of increasing the FAST cut-score.
