Abstract : Student evaluations of their flight instructors, obtained on a sample of 112 men in Intermediate Training Squadron 3, NATB, Pensacola, were used to establish criterion groups for analysis of selection data. Agreement among six criteria of success was determined, and the 20% 'best' and 20% 'worst' instructors isolated in these terms. Conclusions: (1) Six criteria derived from student evaluations can be used to assess the success of flight instructors; (2) The six criteria show close agreement; (3) Using a composite of these six criteria, extreme and highly differentiated groups of 'good' and 'poor' flight instructors can be defined.
