In 2004, the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences ARI was tasked with conducting the research and development towards developing a computer-based and web-administered Selection Instrument for Flight Training SIFT, with emphasis upon aptitudes for Future Force aviator performance. The review of the selection literature and aviator job analysis conducted for that effort indicated that personality is an attribute that might warrant consideration in Army aviator selection and aircraft assignment. Thus, the goals of this research were to identify those personality traits of individuals selecting aviation as their specialty and to compare these scores with the scores of career aviators.
