Increase your chances of surviving an airplane crash (PART 3)

Today we wrap up our conversation about survival tips as they pertain to commercial airplane crashes. The key theme with these tips is awareness. Each tip has to do with being fully aware of your surroundings and being prepared for any possible event. This doesn’t mean an individual should be paranoid. It just means they should be knowledgeable about how to handle an emergency situation, much as motor vehicle drivers should be if they are on the road.

The last few tips to consider are equally important. Although many factors play into this aspect of our health, statistically, those individuals that are more fit have a better chance of survival. People who are overweight or move slowly may have a disadvantage when it comes to evacuation.

A very proactive tip to consider: check the safety ratings of the airline you want to use. Try to avoid airlines that have poor safety records. There are various groups that offer airline safety ratings.

And a final, yet very important tip: stay aware during landings and takeoffs. As we said in our first post, many people board the plane and quickly dose off in their seats. The issue with this is that most airplane crashes happen during the minutes surrounding the landing or the takeoff. So it makes sense to stay awake and ready during this time. Experts advise keeping your shoes on, not listening to your headphones and not drinking alcohol before the arrival or departure. The extra effort during these few critical minutes may mean the difference between life and death.
