Perhaps those with more knowledge of psychiatry and psych testing can fill us in with details regarding of the purpose of the test being proposed for all Eclipse pilots.
According to reports, it will be the same as administered to United Airline Pilots.
A test like this makes sense for United pilots. The company is looking for homogeneity so that any line captain can fly with any first officer on any day of the week. Each will know their duty; none will have an excess of testosterone that would lead to tension in the cockpit, especially on a dark stormy night when the airport is just above minimums and the instrument panel TV displays are showing more flags then what can be seen at a parade on Independence Day.
But alas, owner/pilots don't fit this mold. If a person has $10-15 million of loose change jingling in their pocket and wants to purchase a little jet, it is not likely these individuals are going to fit the mold of homogeneity. Assuming most are guys (apologies to the gal exceptions), I would expect test results would show them to be true alpha-males, the leaders of their packs.
If one flunks the psych test, does a personality re-adjustment program become mandatory?
Or what about this scenario where readers of the blog can complete the ending of the following for themselves:
An owner/pilot is taking his psych test in Denver. He comes to this question, "You are in a not so crowded elevator when another male brushes up against you, how do you feel?
Owner/pilot alpha-male grabs his cell phone and calls ABQ, "Hey Vern, let me tell you how I feel, _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ."
