The diploma thesis deals with requirements for certification of single-engine turbine aircraft involved in commercial air transport and operated in instrument meteorological conditions or at night. The work in the first part introduces the theoretical background of the whole problem and presents to the reader the reasons why the approval of this type of operation in Europe was necessary. Subsequently, the second part of the work states all necessary requirements for obtaining approval for this type of operation, including the legislative framework and the risk analysis. The following section in work demonstrates different values of risk periods along the same route, depending on different conditions affecting aircraft performance. It also introduces possible new means for increasing safety in case of engine failure and subsequent drift down. The aim of the work is to provide a comprehensive overview throughout the certification process and offer existing operators new solutions for their SET-IMC operations, which could also improve their level of safety.
