Abstract : Data from subjective reports, objective performance measures, and physiological studies indicate that flight training per se places a great deal of stress on the trainee. In military flight training additional stresses are involved that may markedly increase the importance of reaction to threat of physical harm. The paper reports effort to develop measures of reaction to physical harm threat and measures of change in confidence in ability to cope with that threat for use in the secondary selection process in U.S. Army aviation.
