My name is Roy Caligan and I am a graduate student at Embry-Riddle. I am conducting an aviation research project, and COPA’s President, Curt Sanford, was kind enough to let me invite this group to be a part of it.
The goal of the project is to determine whether the number of hours needed to solo can predict future performance in training. To find out, I built an anonymous survey where pilots can detail their primary flight training experiences. If you would like to participate, all you will need is your logbook and five minutes of free time.
You can access the survey at http://aviationsurvey.olivetreesolutions.com.
Almost anyone who learned to fly airplanes is eligible to take the survey. I would like to receive around 400 responses by December 1, so I am promoting the survey here and on a few other forums.
Thanks in advance for your help! Also, if you have any questions about the research, or myself, feel free to ask.
