Abstract:

As part of a project by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences Rotary Wing Aviation Research Unit AR RWARU to produce a selection instrument for Army flight training, several viable, existing predictor measures were identified and several new predictors were developed. The resulting prototype battery was pilot tested with 80 aviator candidates prior to beginning flight school, who provided performance data and subjective feedback. This pilot test resulted in revisions and decisions as to the predictors to be included in the prototype battery for preliminary validation.
