Hello, and thank you for your participation in this survey.  By completing this survey, you will have an opportunity to shape the future of the aviation community by helping to identify pilot requirements that are critical to the safe operation of an aircraft. 

PSI Services is conducting an analysis of critical requirements for certified pilots. The purpose of this analysis is to identify the tasks performed by pilots nationwide. The results of this analysis will be used to update the specifications for certification examinations so that the examinations reflect current practices.

Your individual responses will be kept confidential and will be aggregated with those of other respondents to determine group trends. Your contribution is essential to the success of this analysis and the certification examinations. It is important that we receive responses from everyone so that we can obtain a complete and representative picture of the roles of pilots.

The survey is two parts. You will first be asked to provide demographic information (e.g., area of expertise, years of experience, etc.). Then, you will rate Professional Tasks/Activities, Knowledge, and Risk Management statements that are important for the safe operation of an aircraft.  

The survey will take roughly 20 to 40 minutes to complete.

In addition, PSI is offering a $100 gift certificate to Target through a random drawing for all respondents who complete the survey and wish to enter the drawing. A link will be provided at the end of the survey for those who wish to submit their email address and enter the drawing.
