The role of aviation psychologist in professional and psychological support of the process of combat training in the Russian Air Force 2004


Sechko A.V.
PhD, Associate Professor of the Department of Scientific Foundations of Extreme Psychology, Moscow State University of Psychology & Education, Moscow, Russia

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.

Keywords: Air Force of the Russian Federation, professional and psychological support, process of training, flight crews, aircraft accident, diagnostic techniques, corrective treatment, psychological features of flight activity types

Column: Psychology of Professional Activity
