This Web site contains responses collected from the air carrier and general aviation pilot surveys as part of the NASA National Aviation Operational Monitoring Service (NAOMS) project from April 2001 through December 2004. Relevant information is contained in the accompanying documentation. In the interest of timeliness, this first release is by nature conservative to ensure the responses do not contain confidential commercial information or information that could compromise the anonymity of individual pilots. Efforts will be made in 2008 to release additional NAOMS information that was redacted for this release.
NOTE: The responses contained herein, and the methodology used to acquire them, have not been peer-reviewed to date. Accordingly, no product of the NAOMS project, including the survey methodology, the survey responses, and any analysis of the responses, should be viewed or considered at this stage as having been validated.
For questions on the information contained in this site, please contact J.D. Harrington at email@example.com
A technical report prepared by Battelle Memorial Institute for NASA. This report summarizes the methodological development work that was done on the NAOMS project from 1998 to early 2007 by Battelle and its subcontractors under NASA contract NNA05AC07C. The survey used for the air carrier pilots can be found in Appendix 11, and the survey used for the general aviation pilots can be found in Appendix 12.

A summary listing the redaction strategies applied to the survey responses, the rationale, and the particular fields affected; as well as the various categories used to generalize the information
The redacted responses collected from surveys of air carrier and general aviation pilots between April 2001 and December 2004. This includes 25,762 responses to the air carrier pilot surveys and 4,777 responses to the general aviation pilot surveys. In addition, a portion of the actual or raw responses from both surveys is included to show the breadth and scope of the pilot community surveyed and the types of aircraft flown. This information has been disassociated from the parent survey responses.
