For many years, pilot selection has focused primarily on the identification of individuals with superior flying skills and abilities. More recently, the aviation community has become more aware that successful completion of a flight or mission requires not only flying skills but the ability to work well in a crew situation. This paper describes a project that involved the development and validation of a crew resource management (CRM) skills test for Air Force transport pilots. A strong correlation was found between the CRM skills test and behavior-based ratings of aircraft commander CRM performance. The implications of these findings for CRM-based selection and training are discussed.
