Abstract

Methods used by the Japanese Army Air Force and Japanese Naval Air Force for the selection and classification of pilots and other aircrew are described. "Procedures in the two services differed somewhat, but both employed batteries of psychological aptitude tests in assessing fitness for flight training. Written and psychomotor tests were used. In addition, a final interview was held… . Many of the procedures were intentionally subjective, the aim being to arrive at an 'artistic' judgment in each individual case… . Description of all test instruments used by the Japanese, together with accounts of the procedures leading to classification of both aircrew and certain categories of ground crew, are given."
