What Causes Aviation Accidents?
What is most important to understand is that aviation accidents are not relegated to just commercial airlines. While it is true that commercial airlines expose the most number of people in the general population, thus making it more likely for someone to become hurt, private jets and planes have also experienced a fair share of accidents due to negligence. An accident can be attributed to defective airplane or engine parts, as examples.
Other reasons that aviation accidents occur:
- Flight attendant negligence
- Violation of FAA regulations
- Poorly designed or built equipment
- Defective or failed equipment
- Air traffic controller negligence
- Airliner negligence
- Pilot errors
The laws will dictate how cases involving aviation errors will be handled; for instance, it will depend on the location of the accident and the circumstances that led to the accident. Many different airline personnel will need to be interviewed and investigated, and the airplane or helicopter will also need to be evaluated.
