Flying is one of the safest means of travel — however, just like travel by car, train, or bus, there are certain risks that can lead to an accident. Here are the most common factors that are known to cause an aviation accident.
Pilots and other individuals involved in ensuring flight safety, such as maintenance crews and air traffic controllers, can be responsible for causing an aviation accident. Here are some examples:
Before any aircraft can take off, they must be adequately maintained. When mechanical systems and equipment are not checked for proper working order, an aviation accident can be the result. Maintenance errors may include:
Air traffic controllers are responsible for directing planes when they take off and land. They are also responsible for ensuring that there are no obstructions in the way. Failure to properly direct airplane traffic can lead to a mid-air aviation crash or runway crash.
