Conference paper


In 2001, TÜV Süd (formerly TÜV Süddeutschland) examined the air crash frequency on a German research site. This examination was necessary, because the site was located near the former inner German border. Structural changes in the period after the reunification had a great impact on the air traffic in this area; due to these effects it was necessary to determine the air crash frequency to renew the operation permission of the site.
