Sechko A.V., Associate Professor, Chair of Scientific Basis of Extreme Psychology, Department of Extreme Psychology, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education
We substantiate the urgency and importance of psychological analysis of professional activity in crews of the Air Forces of the Russian Federation. We consider the directions of work, methods and techniques of psychological diagnosis and influence, examples of their successful application in the author's own practice. We demonstrate the necessity of psychologist’s close cooperation with the leaders of departments, heads of various services for the integration of implementation of psychological and educational activities. We describe some of the directions of this activity. Examples are given of flight experience, in which the limitations became apparent in the analysis of individual psychological portrait of aviator, omissions in educational work and training of flight personnel.
