Aviation Accidents And Their Effects On The Industry

2 min read

Accidents in the airlines and general aviation affect the aviation industry a lot more than might initially meet the eye. With effects such as increasing regulations that make it more difficult for stakeholders to operate, increased costs of operations due to regulation and liability requirements, and increased cost of insurance and training for flight crews and ground personnel. Nonetheless, these events have ultimately led to a safer aviation industry – particularly airline travel. So much so that based on accident statistics traveling by a commercial airliner is considered the safest mode of transportation.

In today’s digest, I would love to share with you a few good reads on aviation accidents. I also hope to shed some light on the importance of flight safety, how air travel has gotten so safe in recent years, and events that highlight that there is still room for improvements.
