"Mitchell's experiences were similar to those of thousands of young men. Because his mother kept his wartime letters, readers of this book can catch glimpses of a world long vanished and an era that now seems innocent and naive. Mitchell worried about washing out, but he eventually learned to do nighttime "blitz" landings without lights, to loop and roll and recover from a spin, to identify an aircraft from its silhouette, and to navigate cross country. Like many of his peers, he wanted to be a pursuit pilot, but he was assigned to C-47s, a disappointment to which he resigned himself. As a member of the 73d Squadron of the 434th Troop Carrier Group, he delivered glider infantry at Normandy, dropped airborne troops during Operation Market Garden, and supplied the 101st Airborne Division during the Battle of the Bulge."--BOOK JACKET.

The Peacetime Evaluation Of The Pilot Skill Factor In Air To Air Combat

An attempt was made to develop an objective measure for peacetime evaluation of a fighter pilot's air-to-air combat skills. Previous research and combat data from Korea and North Vietnam suggest that the skill of the individual pilot is crucial in the outcome of an aerial engagement. However, it has not been possible to estimate the actual effect or to identify what makes him superior. The Air Force cannot currently evaluate its pilots' air-to-air skills objectively during either their training or operational assignments. This report proposes four research areas that address the effectiveness and evaluation of these pilots: the selection of the prospective pilot from his undergraduate pilot training program, the air-to-air portions of his combat crew training squadron curriculum, the more efficient management of pilot resources, and an examination of the costs and benefits of dissimilar air combat training. It also proposes the development of a pilot skill index.

The General Factor Of Intelligence

This edited volume presents a balanced approach to the ongoing debate of just how general the "general factor" of intelligence is. To accomplish this goal, the editors chose a number of distinct approaches to the study of intelligence--psychometric, genetic-epistemological, cognitive, biological, behavior-genetic, sociocultural, systems--and asked distinguished scholars to write from the standpoint of these approaches. Each approach comprises two chapters, one by a scholar leaning toward a view arguing for the greater generality of g, and the other by a scholar leaning toward a view arguing for the lesser generality of g. The scholars are not simply "for" or "against" these outlooks, rather they provide a more textured view of the general factor, attempting to explain it in psychological terms that are easily understandable. Intended for psychologists in all areas, including clinical, consulting, educational, cognitive, school, developmental, and industrial-organizational, this book will also be of interest to educators, sociologists, anthropologists, and those interested in the nature of intelligence.
