The paper presents a method of analysis and determination of partial operational readiness coefficients and a way of its assessment, as well as guidelines for making decisions in the field of rational management and efficient use of the aircraft with equipment that is partially non-airworthy under conditions of the occurrence of, e.g. armed conflict, state threat, and crisis state. It was indicated that for efficient management of the operation of military aircraft and helicopters under conditions of ensuring flight safety, it is necessary to support a decision-making process with the use of IT systems that allow for current determination of the partial and complete operational readiness level of individual aircraft on-board systems with many states with reduced usability.
