The internship with the Department of Transportation Technology at Western Michigan University enabled the investigator to develop a screening method for the department to use in its pilot training program. It provided an opportunity to study the many and varied skills needed in order to successfully complete the pilot training course and to learn the various techniques used in pilot training. After choosing a screening method, it was given to those students enrolled in flight instruction during the 1972 Fall semester. It was the first time any type of research was begun at Western Michigan University in the aviation curriculum and it is going to be continued so that the Department of Transportation Technology will have a tool by which it can select students who have a high chance for success in the pilot training program.
