Excerpt from Methodology Chapter :

The survey will not take much of your time. It will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

The objective of this study is to determine human factors affecting the safe operation of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) at the United States Air Force. The study is a part of research project for a Master's degree program in aviation/aerospace management. The phrase "heavy" aircraft refers to cargo, transport, or refueling aircraft. Aviation incident refers to an incident in which either the military or the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) conducts a safety investigation.

Following is a list of possible attributes of UAV pilots. The scale is rated from 1 to 5; "1" being "not very important" and "5" being "very important."

Please Tick an appropriate answer from 1 to 6.

For a UAV pilot to demonstrate effective aviation safety, he or she should be a:

1. Graduate from Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT)

2. To be under 40 years old

3. To have a minimum of 100 flying hours

4. To have 3 years of...


To possess computer skills

6. To be a "fighter" pilot

Please answer following questions by choosing the answer that pertains to you:

7. Have you attended Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT) or the new UAV operator course?

1- UPT

2- UAV operator course

3- No previous pilot training.

8. How old are you?

3.-- 1500+

10. How many years of experience do you have as a pilot?

1.-- None

2.-- 5 or less

3.-- 6-15

4.-- 16+

11. Which of these aircraft have you previously piloted? (Circle all that apply)

1.-- "heavy" aircraft; 2-- "fighter/bomber" aircraft; 3.-- rotary aircraft; 4-- none of these

12. Do you possess computer skills?

1..-- Yes

2. -- No

13. Have you ever been involved in a "human related" aviation safety incident?

1-- Yes

2-- No

Following is a list of possible attributes of UAV pilots. The scale is rated from 1 to 5; "1" being "not very important" and "5" being "very important."

14. Critical attributes of being a UAV pilot are to graduate from Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT), being under 40 years old, and having a minimum of 100 flying hours experience.

446). Again, since data collection methods are relevant to specific research studies based on their questions, hypotheses, and literature reviews, this funneling of "phenomena of interest" should ideally suit most research studies -- so long as the those methods are tailored to meet a particular study. When researchers have narrowed down certain characteristics or behaviors that they are looking to observe in their study, they can do with a
