This thesis presents a two-part analysis of excellence criteria for fleet combat replacement squadrons. Part one focuses on the qualitative issues and management techniques identified in outstanding fleet combat replacement squadrons. Part two develops and presents a regression model for predicting a fleet replacement squadron pilot's carrier qualification grade. The model was derived using standard linear regression techniques and the SPSSx software package of the Naval Postgraduate School. CNO (OP-59) sponsored the quantitative portion of the analysis. Approximately 1,300 student aviator training records from fiscal 1986 through 1987 were surveyed to generate the data base for the study. Eleven independent variables were used to predict expected student carrier qualification scores. Two additional models for predicting fleet combat replacement carrier qualification grades and advanced jet training command carrier qualification grades are presented. Functions of the model for a directed detailing capacity were given and additional research topics were recommended.
