A Claim for Relevancy. A Continuing Study of the Characteristics and Motives of Students in an Aviation Class and the Influence of the Class on These Students.
Traylor, E. B.
Reported is research representing a continuation of a series of studies supported by the Cessna Aircraft Corporation. This study focuses on an aviation class in a medium-size city in Illinois in which the Cessna course plan was used. Information focusing on two questions is presented: the nature of students enrolled in an aviation course and the effects of this aviation course on the students. Data were collected through four instruments: Student Data Form, Air Age Attitude Inventory, Student Personal Reaction Form, and a Supplementary Information Form. Findings are reported by instrument involved. Some of these findings were: students enrolled in aviation classes represent a minority of high school students but enjoy some degree of status or prestige within the school social system in that they have moderately superior grade point averages, are active in school activities, and intend to continue their educational careers.
