Abstract : The study was undertaken ian attempt to better understand the psychological factors prompting the decision to voluntarily withdraw (DOR) from flight training. Findings are based on an intensive analysis of questionnaire forms administered to 86 DOR's from Basic Flight Training. Analysis indicates that the causative factors most commonly checked tend to cluster around the idea of 'losing interest in,' 'not deriving satisfaction from,' or just plain 'disliking' flying. Results also show that widely varying time periods elapse between the mental decision to withdraw and the formal expression of that decision. (Author)
