About 16% of pilots scored above 8
 
Although none of the alternatives are completely wrong, some are better than others according to our experts. In research studies, pilots who got low scores on this Inventory tended to have more accidents or hazardous aviation events (close-calls). Safer pilots tend to have high scores -- their choices agreed highly with the recommendations of the experts.
If you got a low score, particularly if your score was below 5, then you should review the situations to see where your judgment did not agree with the recommendations of our experts. In addition, you might want to discuss the situations with your flight instructor or an FAA Aviation Safety Counselor.
