Replacement Air Group Performance as a Criterion for Naval Aviation Training.
Bale, Ronald M.; And Others
The current criterion for prediction of performance of student naval aviators is the dichotomy of success versus failure in undergraduate flight training. This criterion has enabled the naval air training command to make reasonable estimates of the probability of an applicant or student completing flight training. However, a costly attrition problem exists among those aviators who completed undergraduate flight training but were not successful in the replacement air group (RAG), or postgraduate phase of instruction. The study employed a multiple correlation analysis to examine the possibility of utilizing RAG completion as an advanced criterion variable. Undergraduate training grades were found to significantly predict RAG completion. (Author)
