Abstract : The current high attrition rate in USAF pilot training is partly due to high potential eliminees entering the training system. This study examines the flight screening programs of West Germany, Great Britain, Canada, Israel, and the US Navy, and makes observations on significant features in each of the programs. Recommendations are made based on lifting the best features from each program and integrating them into the current USAF flying screening program. By improving the screening process, fewer high potential eliminees will enter the USAF pilot training system, leading to a lower attrition rate. Keywords: Air Force training.
