Abstract : The results of a survey to produce information on the profile and mission of the private pilot are reported. Based upon an analysis of the data produced by the survey, three operational flight profiles were developed: simple, medium-complex, and complex. The profiles were then used to describe the minimum qualifications required of private pilots to operate within each profile. The implications of these findings are directed toward providing knowledge useful in designing a private pilot certification program based upon a standard of operational competence, although the data will be useful in other research relating to the activities of the private pilot.
