EN It should be noted that due to the good of the state (the so-called “national interest”), in the case of transport of VIPs by military aircraft, its acceptable level of risk is lower than in the case of transportation of other passengers. Thus, normative documentation regarding such transport regulates a significantly wider and more extensively indicated range of issues, including the principle of “security above all”, when compared to transportation of other passengers. The regulations contained in the normative documents concerning transportation of state VIPs by military aircraft are to protect them not only from human errors which may have influence on the occurrence of air incidents in the course of such transportation. Normative documents also regulate additional requirements regarding aviation equipment employed to transport state VIPs by military aircraft (to decrease the risk of failure) and an in-depth analysis of environment factors (to decrease the risk related to threats to security of transportation due to unfavourable atmospheric conditions).
