Errors commonly made by pilots

If you live in New York and frequently travel by plane, you may have concerns about just how safe it is to travel via aircraft, given that small and commercial plane crashes frequently make headlines. Given how far aircraft construction has come in recent years, a rising number of plane crashes have ties to pilot errors, rather than mechanical failures, so it is important that you, as a passenger, learn to recognize common pilot mistakes. At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, we understand that catastrophic injuries and even death can result when pilots make errors, and we have helped many aircraft passengers and their families seek recourse after crashes.

What the FAA has done to make sure air travel stays safe

New York residents may remember when a small plane crashed on the way to Florida in September of 2014. Last November, the U.S. News & World Report covered the release of the National Transportation and Safety Board's accident report for that crash. The report revealed the cause to be a design flaw that allowed an overheat switch to activate and cut off the air supply to the plane's cabin. Two occupants died in the accident.

How is an airplane's lifespan determined?

As with any heavy machinery, an airplane is not designed to last forever, but how do New York airlines decide when a plane is no longer safe to fly? The lifespan of an airplane, according to Prime Industries Inc., is not a cut and dry thing. It requires many factors to be considered before an airplane is deemed too old to fly.

What are some tips for flying in the winter?

Weather always plays a role in the safety of a flight, but when it comes to small planes, it can be even more important. If you are a pilot of a small plane in New York, you may shy away from flying in the winter. However, you do not have to do that. You can fly safely as long as you are aware of some important points.
