Abstract

This study explored gender-related perceptions among male and female pilots andthe extent to which such perceptions may cause workplace stress, anxiety, ordepression which may affect female pilots. This study utilized two measuringinstruments on a sample that consisted of 83 pilots. The two measurementinstruments used where the Aviation Gender Attitude Questionnaire (AGAQ) tomeasure gender bias and the Depression Anxiety Stress Scales-21 (DASS-21) tomeasure stress, depression, and anxiety among female pilots. There was asignificant difference found between men and women across all AGAQ factors.While the results of this study concurred with research that suggests thatfemale pilots are at greater risk for negative perceptions and sexism by malepilots, the results did not indicate any greater degrees of depression, stress,or anxiety in women as compared with their male counterparts.
