  • Abstract:
    A nationwide survey of 19,657 pilots was performed to collect information on their aviation qualifications and experiences, their participation in training activities, their involvement in critical aviation incidents, their personal minimums and usual practices when planning and conducting a flight, and their attitudes about flying issues. Results are based on returns received from 35 % of the overall sample. Analyses were conducted to assess possible bias due to nonresponse effects by comparing respondent and nonrespondent groups on accident involvement, age, gender, and recent and total flight experience.

    No differences in accident involvement or in total flight experience were found. However, on average, the respondent group tended to be slightly older and to have slightly less recent flight experience than the nonrespondent group. The implications of these findings are discussed and cautions regarding the interpretation of the results are given. This initial report describes the methodology used in construction of the questionnaire and the procedures used for data collection. The percentages of respondents selecting each of the response alternatives for each question in the questionnaire are provided. Means, standard deviations, and medians are reported for those questions requiring exact numerical entries. Separate analyses of all items are given for private, commercial, and airline transport certificate categories. Possible applications of the data obtained from this study are discussed and proposed follow-on analyses to be conducted and reported in additional reports are described.
