Abstract

The article deals with the classification of emergency occurrences in Czechoslovak and Czech military aviation from 1946 to mid-2016. It lists available information sources and presents original definitions laid down therein, as well as many logical links and indications leading to the formulation of development trends in this field. The knowledge and proper understanding of the classification scales for emergency occurrences in both the Czechoslovak and the Czech military aviation in different periods is the key to understanding and correct interpretation of the statistics of aviation accidents and their preconditions. Statistics, the systematic mathematical processing of professional experience, is one of important bases for a positive development in any sector, which is also the case in military aviation.
