Avis, whose name means bird in Latin, is one of 10 per- sons taking a helicopter pilot I'uuisc at Cambrian College, llv only coiusc of its kind in Canada. J Avis, 2.1, P. secretary (or the education department, sold her car, pooled her savings, (ook out a student loan and in- vested to take the course when it started last fall. She has about 17 flying hours to her credit. When she has 45 hours, she can apply for her private licence from the Iransjwrt department and when she has 100 hours try for her commercial licence. Robert 1-nvack, part-time flying instructor at the col- lege, says ;ui average helicop- ter course elsewhere is at least However. Cam- brian can offer ii ai a lower cost because students are eli- gible for government grants and loans. ;GO AN HOUR The cost of [lying is W an hour at Ihe college. "There is a much higher de- mand for helicopter pilots than for fixed-wing pilots." Mr. Lavack said. "And (here is also a high turnover be- cause they don't like bush- work In isolated areas of the world." Places inaccessible by road, sucli as some mining areas, usually require helicopter service. All the trainees either go lo school or work nearby, and liave spare time for flying. Avis, who believes there are fewer than 10 licensed female helicopter pilots in Canada, is not fussy about where she goes. "1 would not mind going into the bush but (lie camps are not exactly set up for women. I would have to bunk wilh the boys." Assessing intelligence tests no do-it-yourself operation By MAUREEN JAMIESON Staff Writer Pornography is not the only harmful literature appearing on newsstands, according to Dr. Anthony Miller, clinical psy- chologist and Univ e r s i t y of Lelhbridge faculty member. "There are other publications which could be potentially more he said. In particular he cited the self- scoring type of intelligence test. "We put a tremendous empha- sis on intellectual ability in our he said. Parents are very much con- cerned about their children's in- tellectual capacities, particular- ly in terms of education. The reason is education is seen as a key to one's future success, you see." Dr. Miller said the Psycholo- gists Asociation of Alberta is "very, very scared that a par- ent or an individual might work this type of test and do himself real damage." "There are no reliability or validity data available on the he said. "Also, assess- ment of intelligence is a very involved and painstaking pro- fessional function." To measure intelligence, a graduate student in clinical psy- :hology needs at least an addi- tional year of study. Even then, is under supervision, said Dr. Miller. Parents can give one of these self scoring tests lo a child under adverse circumstances, he claimed. Should the child have a low score and the par- ents then tell him he is stupid, "this can just devastate the self- image of the young person." Data collected this fall by Dr. Gary Deatherage of the U of L staff "indicate this test sig- nificantly over estimates adult abilities and underesti- mates children's abilities." Dr. Miller then emphasized that "there is no test that the professional psychologist uses for both children and adults." "If someone has questions about intellectual capacity, he should goto a certified psychol- said Dr. Miller. Professional psychologists are "more concerned with the tola! functioning of a person than the score on a paper and pencil test. We are primarily concern- ed with the danger to naive peo- ple or children." The self scoring Intelligence tests he has seen, said Dr. Mill- er, "appear to have been lifted from copyrighted paper and- pencil lesls, many of them out of dale, though some of the items have boen subtly chang- ed." This kind of lest, according to Dr. Miller, is usually a "sales gimmick" and "they sell you a little kit to increase your in- tellectual function." "You can Increase your ily to score high on Intelligence tests by reading intelligence he added. However, when children "are showing low intellectual func- tions because of lack of learn- ing attempts can be made "to teach them or re- educate them in learning skills." "This is sometimes very suc- he said. But it is "more difficult with adults, as persona lily and intellectual styles" are more organized with maturity and "it becomes in- creasingly difficult to reorgan- ize, but not impossible."
