The purpose of this research is to examine the cohort of Naval Flight Officers (NFOs) commissioned from 1983 to 1990 and analyze the determinants of successful career progression, as measured by patterns of training performance, retention, and promotion. Training performance is defined as NFOs successfully earning their "wings of gold." Retention is defined as remaining in the service beyond the minimum service requirements to the Lieutenant Commander (LCDR/O-4) screening. Promotion is defined as being selected for LCDR. Determinants examined include source of commission, demographics (ethnicity, gender, and age), profile of academic institution, undergraduate and graduate education, time to train, and community platform.
