What is a person’s chance of dying in an airplane crash?

Many people are afraid of flying and it’s a fear that is easy to understand. When we get on an airplane, we put our lives in the hands of mechanics, manufacturers and pilots. Many aircraft passengers feel like they have zero control over their safety and also feel as though their chances of dying in an airplane crash are high.

The airplane crashes that we hear the most about are large multi-passenger crashes where many lives are lost. Although these types of crashes are very tragic and frightening to the general public, it’s important to remember that most airplane crashes involve small airplanes. The airplane may only have one or two people inside it and may be traveling within state lines or near the airport where it took off. Lots of lives are unfortunately lost in these airplane crashes. A few lucky individuals are able to live to talk about the crash they were involved in.

Many individuals may take their aircraft out for a ride or may join someone else during their flight to enjoy the great views and the thrill of being up in the air. Unfortunately, this thrill can easily turn to tragedy if there are issues with maintenance or the airplane itself.
