This paper covers the topic of the training curricula of pilots from the beginning of World War I till the end of World War II in Czechoslovakia. The purpose of this thesis was to focus on the process of the development of the training and factors, that affect this development. Since the author is in pilot training too, she considered it to be interesting enough to find out what was the development of the training and further process of adaptation, that she could later compare to the training she is a part of. The author obtained information mostly from description of historical events, that were substantiated by facts of evolution of aircraft. In the beginning, the thesis covers pilot training in the nowadays society and by obtaining additional information using the historical procedure, in individual chapters the author analyzes the functionality of training centers during particular periods, the characteristics of aircraft technology, the requirements imposed on pilots, the training itself and its development. Ultimately, the author concludes that the aircraft technology and the demands placed upon pilots during their career are the predominant causes of changes in training and, on the other hand, finds that the political situation, which used to affect the training during World War I and II greatly, is nowadays pushed to the background.
