Abstract : The paper reports the results of two studies concerned with the measurement of residual attention, the amount of attention a pilot has left over while performing routine tasks, as a predictor of pilot success. The purpose of the first study was to determine whether residual attention can be measured using adaptive tasks. The second study obtained estimates of the predictive ability of the test battery as well as test-retest reliabilities. Correlations from predictive and post-dictive testing were moderately high with minimal degradation over time indicating that further examination of residual attention as a predictor of flight performance is warranted.
