Abstract

The article deals with the statistics of aviation accidents and preconditions for aviation accidents focusing on fires in military jet fighter, trainer-fighter and trainer aircraft in the service of Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic from 1948 until the end of 2015. It presents a unique, previously unpublished, comprehensive overview of air disasters, crashes, damage and preconditions for aviation accidents broken down by aircraft types, as well as a complete list of military regulations containing classifications of such emergency occurrences in Czechoslovak and Czech military aviation over the past 70 years. The overviews are accompanied by explanations on the context and development trends in Czechoslovak and Czech military aviation flight safety and with a unique overview of still available reference and information sources on the subject.
