Abstract : Factor structures of Marine jet and helicopter pilot training measures and post-training performance criteria are compared and discussed. Academic ability, flying ability, and systems comprehension factors were common to both samples. Additional factors unique to each sample were also identified. Significant relationships were found between some performance criteria and some factors, although the criteria factor loadings were low. The results of the investigation are compared with previous factor analytic studies of aviation training measures that did not include post-training criterion data. (Author)
