Objective To develop a questionnaire of civil pilots professional morality. Methods The theory structure of professional morality of civil pilots was constructed. Regarded to the theory structure and the result of documents and specialists evaluation, a questionnaire of civil pilots professional morality was developed. In order to examine the validity, 324 pilots of CAAC were tested. Results The professional morality of civil pilot was composed of three key dimensions. The Cronbach of full questionnaire was α = 0.863, and the content validities were from 0.760 to 0.842 (P < 0.01). Coefficient of stability of the questionnaire was beyond 0.463 (P < 0.01), and criterion validity of questionnaire was 0.564 (P < 0.01). Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) of questionnaire met the requirements. Conclusion The questionnaire proves to be applicable to civil pilots in evaluating their professional morality.
