EN It should be observed that for the sake of national welfare, while transporting state VIPs by military aircraft, the level of risk that is acceptable is lower than in the case of other passengers. Consequently, normative documentation regarding such transport regulates a range of issues that is considerably wider and more precisely defined than when transporting other passengers, relying on the principle “safety above all.” Regulations contained in normative documents concerning the transport of state VIPs by military aircraft are to protect not only against human mistakes, which might cause an air incident during such flights. Normative documents also regulate additional requirements that concern (1) aviation equipment used during transport of state VIPs by military aircraft (so as to limit the risk of mechanical failure) and (2) in-depth analysis of environmental factors (so as to reduce threat to transport safety as a result of adverse weather conditions).
