Pilot loses life in small airplane accident in NY

Although some pilots have had years of training and experience, pilot errors, aircraft defects and malfunctions can lead to catastrophic accidents. When something unexpected happens, it is often up to the pilot to use his or her knowledge to minimize the disastrous effects of the incident. There are some cases, however, that are unavoidable and could injure or kill innocent people.

What you should know to stay safe on your flight

Whether you travel regularly for work or leisure, or you board an occasional flight,  it is crucial that you understand what you can do to stay safe on the plane. Knowledge of potential safety issues may be extremely helpful in certain situations. Although it may be unlikely that an airplane accident occurs, you can be prepared to face a hazardous situation and minimize the risk of injury or death.

Shortcuts could lead to aircraft accidents and deaths

Billions of dollars are spent in the aviation industry, as new aircraft are built and older aircrafts are repaired and maintained. Airline pilots must be trained extensively to ensure they know how to operate the model of aircraft they are piloting. Working on massive air carriers and training pilots can be costly and time consuming. However, if something should go wrong with an airplane while taking off, in flight or landing, the lives of everyone on board is at stake.

How are aircraft product failures reported?

When you step aboard an aircraft, you trust that the plane will get you to your desired destination safely. To ensure the aircraft is safe to fly under high stress, heavy pressure and volatile weather conditions, it is critical that all of the parts of the plane are designed to work properly and are in perfect working condition. All product manufacturers are required to report any malfunctions, system failures and product defects that occur in order to minimize the risk of a catastrophic event.

How easy is it to get sick on a plane?

You may already take precautions to avoid catching something from a fellow passenger whenever you fly, such as washing your hands frequently or packing antibacterial wipes and a protective mask in your carry-on luggage. Exactly how common is it to catch a flu or other illness on an airplane, you and other New York residents may wonder?
