Abstract : Part of the aircrew management survey is a short questionnaire to be completed by wives on a voluntary basis. Data from four groups were compared to reveal potential trends in the problem areas covered in the survey. This comparison revealed that, for officer wives, the largest favorable change involved a reduction in the number of days husbands spent on TDY and resulting improvement in the husbands' ability to relax. The largest negative changes involved living conditions, cost-of-living, and the effect of the husbands' frequent absences on the marriage. For airman wives, the largest favorable changes involved living conditions and cost-of-living, the average number of days husbands spent on TDY, and additional duties. The largest negative changes involved attitude toward husbands' flying duties, effects of husbands' absences on children, and greater difficulties experienced by husbands in relaxing. Descriptions of the modal officer and enlisted aircrewman were derived. (Author)
