The USAF pilot selection and classification research program.
Aviat Space Environ Med. 1985 Mar; 56(3):258-61.AS

Abstract

A multi-year research program to improve the selection of pilot trainees and the classification of student pilots for either fighter or heavy aircraft training is described. A battery of experimental tests measuring psychomotor skills, personality traits, and cognitive abilities is being given via computer prior to training. The subjects' performance in training and operational flying is then tracked and analyzed. The preliminary results and future directions of this ongoing program are discussed.
