The Ebbage-Spencer report on Airmanship for Modern Aircrew is an interesting read and can be found at: http://www.dtic.mil/cgi-bin/GetTRDoc?AD=ADA428471&Location=U2&doc=GetTRDoc.pdf
The “airmanship definitions mentioned come from these sources:
 Training Development and Support Unit Flying Training Development Wing, Airmanship TDSYU/779/1/5/TRG 27 June 2000
 Hayes, T. (2002) Airmanship & flight discipline.
 Kern, T. (1996). Redefining Airmanship. McGraw-Hill.
Two BAE Systems researchers — Louise Ebbage from BAE's Advanced Technology Center and Phil D. Spenser from BAE's Training Solutions operation — attempted to define “airmanship” in a paper presented during a 2003 NATO symposium. Exploring the literature they turned up several definitions. Here are a few (see the box at the end of the story if you want to learn more about these sources).
