dc.description.abstractWith the costs of pilot training escalating, it is becoming increasingly important to make as few mistakes as possible in the selection of potential aviators. In the early days of aviation the use of psychomotor testing played a big role in this selection process, but the physical complexities of the system cause its discontinuance. More recently, researchers at the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory, using microcomputers, have developed two new series of psychomotor tests. The thesis uses stepwise and multiple regression techniques to confirm the viability of using such a series of psychomotor tests to predict the flight grades of student aviator in primary flight school. The fitten regression model accounted for 77% of the variance in the primary flight school grade data examined and appeared to be approximately 4.5 times better than the model currently used.en_US
