Abstract : Current Airman (AN) qualifications are applied equally to all Group IX (Aviation) ratings although they are actually fleet/squadron oriented and do not reflect realistic professional requirements applicable as an apprenticeship to all work areas in the aviation rating structure. Research was initiated to review current AN qualifications to determine the desirability and practicability of developing 'common core' qualifications supplemented by rating-oriented items. Data initially gathered and analyzed indicated it was neither feasible to group AN qualifications into the aircraft maintenance, operational, and clerical areas nor to develop AN advancement qualifications which would be class 'A' service school oriented. The research approach was therefore revised to provide for the development of new AN advancement qualifications encompassing general aviation knowledge factors only. (Author)
