Abstract : The Operation with Economic Efficiency (OEE) Program in the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) was designed to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of all ROKAF operations. The ROKAF is now faced with the problem of developing a more efficient pilot candidate selection and training program which will improve pilot quality and reduce attrition rates and the number of aircraft accidents. The present research provides a starting point for the development of a more efficient pilot selection and training program. If successful this program should result in the selection of pilot candidates exhibiting a significantly higher probability of completing the pilot training program. This thesis also provides a summary of aviation selection test batteries presently in use by the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy and applies the principles of decision theory in determining whether a change in the ROKAF's present pilot selection system is feasible.
