What causes air rage?

Everyone knows about road rage – those terrifying incidents in which another driver intends to cause harm after any kind of traffic-related slight. Less commonly heard about, but no less serious, are incidents of air rage. You and other New Yorkers who travel by air may be interested in learning why air rage occurs, as well as the surprising factors that may cause it.

Examining if Boeing had the chance to prevent major accidents

Commercial airline jets are a true force to be reckoned with, an absolutely awe-inspiring innovation that allows people in the modern-day to travel the world in the open skies.

It recently came to light that an investigation into the first crash by the Federal Aviation Administration concluded that the likelihood of more crashes was high. The top safety official at the FAA recently appeared before a Senate subcommittee to answer questions regarding the FAA's decisions following the conclusion of the investigation. 

Death of YouTuber shows potential recreational flying dangers

As previous posts in this blog have discussed, small plane crashes are more common than commercial airplane accidents. This is often due to pilots with less experience or the difficulty in keeping a smaller craft under control in adverse weather or mechanical emergency situations. Those in New York with a taste for adventure and thrill-seeking may want to consider the potential risks of such recreational aviation activities as paragliding.
