The problem of stability of bilayer type II superconductor with different critical current densities of inner part and coating was considered. The optimum thickness of surface layer enabling the maximal increase of the field of first flux jump was found. The field of instability for such bilayer structure was calculated for NbTi superconductor. An increase of the field of the first flux jump by about 60% has been found for optimal coating thickness.
