Aviation training flight crash leads to lawsuit

Flight has been in the dreams of humans since time immemorial. Now, we take for granted our ability to jet off to any destination in the world, no matter how distant. In the early 20th century, many aviation pioneers died to make that possible. But people can still be injured or killed while aspiring for flight.

There are many famous commercial aviation accidents that have affected hundreds of lives. But the risks per aircraft are often higher with smaller planes like single-propeller craft used for training. These are more susceptible to wind shear, turbulence and other unpredictable conditions that may disable or down an aircraft.

An aviation company is a defendant in an upcoming lawsuit regarding the injuries suffered by the plaintiff's daughter. The victim and three others were seriously hurt during an aborted flight that was part of an aviation training program. One of the pilots, who did not hold a license, was attempting to take off when the plane crashed.

"Why would you allow a student – who doesn't know anything about flying – why would you let him fly the plane?" said the plaintiff to a local news outlet.

The pilot who allegedly should have been in control of the aircraft was injured but later released. The plaintiff claims her daughter's mounting hospital bills and a lack of communication from the operating company led to the lawsuit.

People injured in small plane crashes may file a suit for financial damages to help with recovery and other expenses that may result. An attorney can help families work out the best way to get past an accident involving an airplane.
