Abstract : Research is reported on the possible relationship between field dependence-independence, as measured by the rod and frame test (RFT), and aviator attitudes regarding IFR flight. The degree of aviator preference for actual instrument flight, determined by questionnaires and personal interviews, served as the basis for division of an aviator sample of 43 pilots into high and low preference groups. These groups were examined relative to each of the three field dependency measures derived from RFT performance. In addition, demographic data of both subject groups were reduced and examined.
