Roman Nevzorov


The article aims to substantiate the procedure for measuring the motivational and volitional component of professional training for future tactical aviation pilots engaged in combat flights. The study employed a methodology to determine the motivational complex of personality as an indicator of satisfaction with the chosen military pilot profession. This methodology was based on previous research that highlights the correlation between professional satisfaction and the type of motivational complex, including intrinsic, extrinsic positive, and extrinsic negative elements. The diagnostic method utilized in this study was developed by K. Zamfir and modified by A. Rean. Furthermore, the research assessed volitional qualities by examining the content and expression of decision-making in challenging situations. The diagnostic method employed in this assessment was developed by N. Stambulova. The measurement of the motivational-volitional component of professional readiness among military pilot cadets revealed notable differences between the experimental group and control group in terms of their motivational and volitional indicators. The obtained results underline the significance of incorporating these findings to enhance the educational process for military pilot cadets. Implementing a pedagogical system based on the effectiveness demonstrated in measuring the motivational component of professional training will be crucial in this regard.
