While relatively rare, commercial airplane accidents do occur. According to the Aviation Safety Network, on average, 28.2 airplane accidents occur each year involving aircraft that carry 14 or more passengers. With a 24% chance of survival, this has resulted in over 6,000 lives lost during the past 10 years.
Smaller, private airplane accidents are much more common. In both cases, the roots of the crash were likely rooted in preventable circumstances. When a preventable crash occurs, that means there’s a person or company whose negligence cost someone else their health or their life.
