Many proposed solutions for preventing aircraft accidents in the U. S. NAVY have led to elimination of some of the obvious causal factors . Underlying factors related to Attack Carrier operating methods and pilot performance are examined for aircraft accidents which occurred during deployments from 1962 through 1963. Variables derived from CVA operating schedules for the SIXTH and SEVENTH FLEETS are illustrated and compared. Conditions surrounding aircraft accidents, such as length of time on deployment, time at sea and in port, and pilot's experience are studied to determine similarities and differences in fleet operations. Computer programs are presented which were written to process and display the data contained in ship movement reports and aircraft accident reports.
