Aeroplane accident figures
They say an aeroplane accident is far less likely to occur than say a road or rail accident. The available statistics do back this up, which is something we can perhaps take comfort in. Despite the ranting of the doom and gloom brigade, a plane accident is a lot more survivable than you might think. Clearly, if an “incident” were to occur at 35,000 feet above sea level, chances of survival are slim. But a plane accident if it does occur is statistically more likely to happen around take-off or landing. This puts the plane closer to or even on the ground and vitally, within reach of the emergency services based at the airport. Figures for 2010 make for interesting reading…
- The accident rate was equal to 1 accident In 1.4 million flights
- 2.4 billion people flew safely
- The number of flights totalled 36.8 million
No airline can guarantee 100% safety but with the constant development of aircraft and the way they are regulated, a plane accident is far less likely today than it was in the 1950s when jet airliners first took flight. It’s quite possible to emerge from a plane accident with cuts and bruises or the sort of injury one might associate with a car crash.
Aeroplane accident compensation
