Abstract : The 1636 U. S. Navy and Marine officers who entered flight training during the calendar years of 1960 and 1961 were compared on various types of attrition in order to determine if there were any significant differences in attrition associated with rank. A second part of the study was devoted to the investigation of rank as a predictor variable. The results indicated that the higher ranking officers had a higher attrition rate, mainly in the category of voluntary withdrawal. The rank of the incoming officer when used as a predictor variable significantly increased the validity of predicting both completion of flight training and voluntary withdrawal from this training.
