Abstract : Aircrew morale was studied in 176 MAC aircrewmen. In interviews and questionnaires, nine problem areas were identified. The primary problem reported by the aircrewmen was lack of planned free time. This factor had a negative effect both on duty and off duty. The remaining eight factors were more specific to the working environment. Several were a function of the mission of the command but some were accessible to local modification. In the face of these problems, aircrewmen maintained good motivation, probably because of the satisfactions obtained from flying and from other aspects of their Air Force careers. (Author)
