Abstract : This report conducts limited exploratory research into the possible relationship between birth order and an above average aptitude for aviation training. It reviews some of the basic elements of the science of ethology, birth order traits and possible correlations to military aviators. The study concludes that actual research into the Navy and Air Force aviator populations should be conducted to establish what, if any, relationship exists. Improved selection criteria might be established.
