Abstract


Training the Indonesian Air Force flyers takes a lot of time and fund. The cramped training
schedule, demand of discipline and achievement, and intense stress from the fear of dying from
plane accidents give the flyer students an even bigger stress that could potentially lead to
anxiousness. In the selection of flyer candidates in the field, the most important aspect to be
noticed is the body readiness of the candidates, whereas the mental health is frequently left
unchecked. There was a case in a training session where a flyer student experienced a bad
mental and academic achievement that, after being traced, resulted from poor mental health
test, although the military body readiness test was good. It left the country with a loss from
having to discharge the student. The aim of this study was to identify the relationship between
the military body readiness level and the anxiousness tendency of a flyer apprentice. This was an
observational study with cross-sectional design. The research subjects was the flyer students of
the Indonesian National Air Force Army in Adisutjipto Airbase Yogyakarta. The sample was taken
from all of the subjects which fulfilled the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The measurement of
the anxiousness used the TMAS (Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale), whereas the military body
readiness value was taken directly in the field test. Moreover, psychological stress was also
measured using Instrument of Psychosocial Stressor Assessment (IPSP). The results were analyzed
using Chi-Square test and multiple regression analysis. It was found that there was no significantly
relationship between the military body readiness value and the anxiousness tendency of the
flyer student in the flyer academy of the Indonesian National Air Force Army in Adisutjipto
Airbase Yogyakarta (p>0,05). The psychological stress factor has a role in creating the anxiousness
tendency of the flyer students.
