Traveling by airplane is arguably one of the safest methods of transportation; however, as with any method of transportation, there are still risks involved with flying. Airplane crashes, including commercial aircraft and private aircraft, can result in catastrophic consequences and grief for the crew, passengers and their families. Aviation wrecks may also impact people living near the crash site.The Federal Aviation Administration, the United States Department of Transportation agency that oversees all aspects of United States civil aviation, including aircraft, airplane and airline travel, forecasts that the number of commercial flights and passenger volume is expected to climb; by 2023, more than 1 billion passengers will fly every year. An increased amount of flights and passengers may contribute to a correlating increased risk in airplane accidents in the air and on the runway. Whether the plane is a large commercial airplane, helicopter, prop plane, private jet or other aircraft, these accidents may result in burn injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or even death.
Many factors may contribute to an aviation accident, including:
- Pilot error
- Runway defects
- Fatigued pilots
- Air traffic control violations
- Erroneous flight manual information
- Improper maintenance
- Inadequate training
- Mechanical failure
- Defective parts
