Abstract : This study looks at ways to improve USAF Flight Screening Programs (FSP) in order to reduce attrition in Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT). A literature search was performed to discover what had already done in this area. A synopsis of several studies on FSPs is included in the text. This study fills a void in the literature by comparing the USAF FSPs to other service and foreign FSPs. This approach identified several different ways to screen potential pilot candidates. Some of these flight screening techniques could reduce USAF UPT attrition rates if implemented in the USAF FSPs. Further consolidation and standardization of USAF FSPs and increased emphasis on light aircraft screening offer the greatest potential to reduce attrition in UPT. Keywords: Personnel selection.
