532

Abstract

The article explores the changes in the psychological characteristics of the personality of senior age personnel, who play an important role in ensuring the professional performance of staff and passen-ger safety. The specifics of pilots’ activities, their psychological and personal qualities are noted and described, and changes that occur with the increase in age have been revealed. The study involved 466 people of two age groups, young and age. With the help of L.N. Sobchik’s “SMIL” method, a number of personal features of aviation personnel of older age groups have been revealed. The use of correlation analysis showed a number of differences in the two groups in such personal indicators as “overcontrol”, “pessimism”, “rigidity”, “introversion”. The results will allow to take into account the individual characteristics of young and age aviation personnel in psychological examination, place-ment of personnel.
