Personal potential in the practice of psychological support of flight activity
Abstract: The subject of this research is the methods of psychological support of flight activity, which explicate the theory of Doctor of Psychological Sciences, Professor D. V. Gander on psychological support of flight activity. The author explores such questions as making decisions by pilot as the operator of ergatic system, with emphasis on the psychological aspects of flight activity on modern aircrafts and formation of professional competencies of the pilot. The research methodology is based on the systemic approach and encompasses theoretical-analytical and generalizing methods, longitudinal analysis, collection of empirical data, analysis of pilot activity through studying documentation and expert survey, professiography, and mathematical statistics. The scientific novelty is defined by the developed model of personal potential of the pilot from the perspective of holistic representation on the specificity and dynamics of the development of personal potential. The study of psychological professionally important qualities led to the creation of the factor model of personal potential of the pilot; while qualitative analysis of the acquired data allowed interpreting the content of personal potential from the perspective of systemic approach. Thus, the hypothesis is proven that the success of mastering flight activity depends not so much on the absolute values of the development of professionally important qualities, but on the specifically organized structure of qualities that form personal potential of the pilot. It is also stated that the achievements in flight activity are the most significant indicator of the status of development of personal potential.
