The risk of aviation accidents increases each year as we fly more and continue to increase air traffic. Air travel is considered to be a safe mode of commuting. However, when accidents occur they often result in fatalities. Less serious and smaller accidents where private aircrafts are involved are more frequent, but mostly go unreported by the media.
The law covers both general and major air carrier aviation accidents. General aviation involves all non-commercial aircrafts like large business jets, small planes, pleasure crafts, charter flights, hang gliders, and helicopters.
The most common causes of aviation accidents include:
- Faulty equipment
- Pilot error
- Structural or design problems
- Negligence of flight service employees
