Abstract

The article deals with the statistics, causes and consequences of aviation accidents and preconditions for aviation accidents linked causally to jet engine surge events in military jet fighter, fighter-trainer and trainer aircraft in the service of Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic from 1960 until the end of 2016. It presents a complete list of such aviation emergencies on a timeline, as well as technical contexts and facts of interest (for example, hazardous flight stages, hazardous aircraft types prone to engine surges or possibilities and developments in anti-surge systems). The role of human, technical and environmental factors in the occurrence of these air emergency events is also analyzed. The study is complemented by an overview of information sources on the subject that are currently still accessible.
