Operational Errors in Air Traffic

The obligatory value representing the allowable number of events in air traffic (in particular accidents), calculated upon historical data known as Target Level of Safety - TLS, is at present valid only for accidents and equals 1,55*10-8 an accident per one flight hour. This value, unless the previously calculated TLS, would be reliable and this equation itself might be useful to monitor the current level of safety (CLS) by putting into it the current performance characteristics of a staff.
