dc.description.abstractTo properly select individuals for flight training using anxiety as a predictor, it was necessary to investigate various aspects of anxiety. Initially, anxiety must be defined and its relationship to learning and task performance revealed. Additionally the effects of an instructor pilot known as a "screamer" were analyzed. Empirical data was drawn from flight students at Patrol Squadron Thirty-One using the. State-Trait Anxiety Inventory and a Supplementary Questionnaire. Although no statistically significant correlations between state and trait anxiety and flight grades were revealed, the correlations were all negative as face validity would indicate. Additionally, of thirty-three students, all indicated the "screamer" as a detriment to learning and task performance to various degrees.
