The study sought to determine if career rotary-wing aviators tended to prefer certain types of rotary-wing aircraft over others. The U.S. Army rotary-wing aircraft were tasked with four primary mission platforms: Utility, Attack, Cargo, and Scout/Observation. Seventy-five subjects with an average of 20 years of military experience completed the NEO-PI-R and a mission platform-preference questionnaire. The NEO-PI-R measures personality traits along the Five-Factor Model scales. The findings indicated an overall personality profile of average levels of Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness. Neuroticism and Openness to New Experiences were scored low. The finds grouped by mission platform reveal a correlation between Agreeableness and those reporting a preference for Utility missions. Utility aircraft are general service aircraft that provide numerous support services. A high score in Agreeableness would match this type of mission.
