Abstract: Just prior to World War II the Air Force initiated a program of psychological research on the problem of selecting candidates for aircrew training. As a result of this work there was developed a battery of tests to measure the various aptitudes which analysis of air operatiorrs indicated as being important for the various aircrew positions. These tests are given to all aircrew candidates and for each aircrew position a set of weights is attached to each test in the series in order that the candidate’s qualifications can be determined.
