Abstract : Most intellectual and cognitive assessment of pilots is done with locally developed assessment devices. This paper presents the test scores of 537 USAF pilot training candidates who were tested with commercially available, 'off-the-shelf' products. Multidimensional Aptitude Battery subscale scores and summary intelligence scores were found to be well above average. Data from the new CogScreen (Aeromedical Edition) is also provided and shows consistent differences between pilot training candidates and commercial pilots across reaction time, accuracy, throughput, and process measures.
