Abstract : The study was an investigation of student pilot motivation for, and attitudes toward, the Air Training Command's undergraduate pilot training (UPT) program. The motivation-hygiene approach was used to systematically identify the motivational factors operating in the UPT program. This approach has been used extensively in industry and with success in a non-training military situation. The purposes of the study were: to employ motivation-hygiene theory and critical incident interview methodology for investigation of motivation in a military training situation, specifically, undergraduate pilot training; and to compare the findings from the undergraduate pilot trainee sample with another Air Force sample and samples from industrial organizations.
