|Abstract: ||Abstract:Little research has been done into the performance of male and female pilots and how they are selected. This is an important omission because an increasing number of women are applying to be commercial pilots and effective selection methods can screen out unsuitable candidates in advance. This study thus analyzes whether differences exist between males and females in their performance, as perceived by managers, and the procedures and criteria used in the selection of male and female pilots. To examine these questions 36 semi-structured interviews were conducted with managers at 6 Taiwanese airlines. The results of the interviews revealed no perceived performance differences in operations by male and female pilots. They also showed that female and male pilots were chosen according to the same selection criteria and procedures. Finally, the interviews indicated similar selection criteria and procedures were followed by the major Taiwanese airlines when choosing commercial pilots whether they were males or females.|
