THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MOTIVATION AND FLIGHT PERFORMANCE IN COMBAT PILOT TRAINING AS A PROFESSIONAL-LIFELONG EDUCATION

I. Dağlı

Air War College (TURKEY)
Combat pilot training course requires a complicated, tough and lenghty education period. This professional education involves different kinds of rigorous phases. The pilot trainees are subjected to theoretical and practical examinations because they must attain various levels of proficiency. Rather than ending upon education, this learning process seems to be lifelong because each combat pilot should improve himself theoretically and practically every time.

Motivation is a way of directing human behavior towards a desired path. It is required to improve students’ achievements during an education course. To motivate an adult learner, it is important to find the correct strategies to enhance learning.

In this article, non-motivated, motivated and highly motivated students are examined in a case study. By means of identifying the relationship between performance and motivation, the purpose of this paper is to find out the appropriate way of motivation to make a trainee ready for a course and his lifelong professional education. Some of the techniques used to motivate a pilot trainee may be benefical to other teachers in different kinds of educations.

As a result, a robust relationship is observed between the motivation and performance. The students that cannot be motivated enough, perform less during course so they do not succeed. However, some candidates fail under high motivating conditions.
