Abstract : This study analyzes CNATRA Automated Training Jackets, a new survey of NASC accessions, and extensive structured interview data to: 1) describe the complex flow of Student Naval Aviators (SNAs) through the various paths of the aviation training pipeline in terms of attrition/completion patterns and training times; 2) examine the extent to which technical major and AQT/FAR scores predict training success for Student Naval Flight Officers (SNFOs) and Student Naval Pilots (SNPs), respectively; 3) analyze differences in the training outcomes for minority and nonminority candidates; 4) develop a new survey instrument for Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC) that provides detailed biographical information on naval aviation accessions; 5) establish an automated data base that collates information from the accession survey with performance data, for the purpose of monitoring trends and identifying background and experiential indicators for the 'whole-man' concept in naval aviation recruitment and selection; 6) recommend enhancement in recruitment, selection, and the training process which can reduce failures and increase efficiency while maintaining the high quality that is the hallmark of naval aviation; 7) outline promising strategies for further research, including potential experiments as well as analyses of automated data bases.
