Abstract : The primary purpose of this research was to compare reasons for withdrawal from the Naval Air Basic Training Program for January 1955 with the reasons in January 1954 and 1953. A comparison of the flight failure - voluntary withdrawal ratio also was made for calendar 1954 and 1953. The findings were: (1) The most stable reasons for withdrawal from the program were the factors associated with flying; less stable were the factors associated with external influences and attitudes toward the military. (2) There has been a striking reduction in the ratio of voluntary withdrawals to flight failures from calendar 1953 to 1954. (Author)
