Do defects cause plane crashes?

Air travel is pretty safe in general. Whether you fly out of New York or into it, you are relying on many people's hard work to ensure your flight goes smoothly and that you get from one place to the other safely. However, as with any mode of transportation, things can sometimes go wrong. Someone drops the ball, and it leads to a plane crash. 

How do commercial airline crashes impact aviation safety?

When a plane crashes, it is devastating. Typically, there are many lives lost and sometimes major property damage. However, planes take off out of New York multiple times a day and most have no problems whatsoever. In fact, when something does go wrong with a plane, it is carefully studied and helps result in changes within the aviation industry that make flying even safer for you. 

Effects of airplane crashes on survivors

Surviving the aftermath of a plane crash on a New York runway can be traumatizing for just about anyone who has made it through the ordeal. Whether a plane has crashed due to a design flaw, pilot error, or adverse weather conditions, survivors of an aviation incident have specific needs to be tended to, in addition to any required medical attention.
