dc.description.abstract The Flight Management Attitudes and Safety Survey (FMASS) (Sexton, Helmreich, Wilhelm & Merritt, 2001) is one of the most widely used measures of pilot safety attitudes in research and applied settings. Previous research has shown that earlier versions of the FMASS, (CMAQ and FMAQ are reliable and valid measures of flight management attitudes. However there does not appear to be any independent research conducted on the psychometric properties of the FMASS. The current study assessed the reliability and validity of the FMASS. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was performed on the FMASS, using data from a sample of Canadian airline pilots. Results indicated the data were not able to confirm the proposed factor structure. In addition, results showed poor internal consistency. The results of the current study indicated that more research is needed on the psychometric properties.
