This thesis attempts to analyze which factors cause attrition among Air Force pilots during their active duty periods. The Air Force invests a significant amount of time and money in pilot training. Because of the high cost incurred during the pilot's training period as well as during his active duty service, to discharge one or to have one of them leave the service is extremely costly. Empirical models were estimated for all pilots entering the officer corps between 1976 and 1986. Data records utilized in this thesis were obtained from Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) Master and L0ss files. Demographic and other relevant factors were included in these models to examine the effects on pilots' remaining in or leaving the Air Force and on the number of years of commissioned service.
