Abstract : The Korean Air Force is continuously being challenged with the problem of whether to drop or retain a student who is having difficulties in flight training. The pass or fail decision is critical not only to the Korean Air Force but also to the student pilot himself. The purpose of this study is to determine and standardize criteria of excellence in order to improve the success of the student pilot screening process. The following two research questions are addressed: (1) What are the primary factors that predict aviation excellence? (2) How do these factors apply to student pilot screening in the Korean Air Force ? The anticipated benefit of this study is the improvement in the screening of undergraduate pilots in the Korean Air Force.
