The article is devoted to the problem of the system organization of psychological support for the professional activity of civil aviation pilots. Psychological support of flight activity is a set of measures aimed at studying flight activity, maintaining the professional longevity of flight personnel by evaluating the qualities that determine professional suitability and efficiency of the pilot, as well as correcting emerging psychological conditions reducing the reliability of his professional activity. The tasks of psychological support include improving the effectiveness of flight crew training methods, searching for reserves of the human psyche necessary to overcome difficult situations in flight, selecting aviation personnel, evaluating and improving the psychological climate in the structural divisions of the airline, as well as directly in the flight crew itself. The scientific and practical methods of professional support include: analysis, forecasting, training.

The main importance for psychological support is the system of longitudinal professional psychological selection. A longitudinal study of professionally important qualities of flight personnel in the aviation training center for civil aviation, conducted in the period from 2006 to 2020, showed that the success of mastering the flight profession did not so much depend on the absolute values of the development of professionally important qualities, as on the ratio of studied qualities and the dynamics of their development in the process of flight training. In this article the study of professionally important qualities of pilots is considered from the standpoint of operational efficiency and is the continuation of the research of D. V. Gander, G. M. Zarakovsky, D. A. Leontiev, V. A. Ponomarenko, etc.

Prolonged selection of flight personnel should be carried out at every stage of the pilot’s professionalization, including the stage of advanced training and in the process of periodic ground training. This paper presents the analysis of the data obtained at the stage of retraining pilots for a new type of aircraft and commissioning as an aircraft commander.


Keywords: psychological selection of pilots; training of civil aviation pilots; system psychology; professionally important qualities; flight safety; personal potential; medical and flight expert commission (VLEK); professional suitability.
