SELECTION TESTS FOR AAF NAVIGATORS

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Until World War II little attention had been given to the problem of selecting personnel for aircrew training. The prerequisites at that time were excellent physical condition, four years of college, a professed interest, and enough confidence to enter a course of training knowing that the chances of failure were better than the chances of success. However, with the advent of war, it became impossible to fill the demand for navigators and other air crew personnel from the rapidly dwindling supply of men having such qualifications. A solution to this problem was a necessity.
