It was the objective of this study to determine to what extent automobile driving records may be used in predicting the occurrance of pilot-error aircraft accidents.
An analysis was conducted on all pilot-error aircraft accidents in the state of Utah during the time period of January 1, 1972 through December 31, 1973.
Although the total calculations were not significant, the evidence indicates that the pilot who receives many automobile driving citations will be involved in more pilot-error aircraft accidents. A trend was established with age and the Weighted Citation Index, with 70.69 percent of the grouped classes correctly classified.
