Abstract : The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the 1962-63 NROTC Aviation Indoctrination Field Tours by identifying changes in the students' knowledge about and attitudes toward aviation and by determining the students' attitudes toward the tour experience. Comparisons with previous NROTC and U. S. Naval Academy groups also were made. As in previous studies the results indicated a favorable endorsement of the AIFT concept. There was strong evidence that the tour contributed to a more realistic picture of naval aviation and an increase in the perceived status of naval aviation. There was evidence, however, that information about the Naval Aviation Officer (NAO) Program was not reaching all of the students. (Author)
