Woman killed in commercial airplane crash

When people board a flight, they should feel rest assured that the airplane they are entering has been fully maintained and is safe for travel. However, mistakes made in the upkeep of the plane or system failure could lead to a catastrophic event. Ultimately, the airline responsible for taking care of the airplanes is to blame for any accidents, injuries or deaths that are caused as a result of poor equipment maintenance.

Why did a major airline ignore its mechanics' concerns?

When you board a commercial aircraft in New York, you probably do not ask yourself the last time the plane underwent inspection. Why? Chances are, you trust that the airline itself has a team of mechanics in place who are making sure the aircraft is safe for flight. Regrettably, however, it appears that at least one major airline is questioning its mechanics when they report issues and discouraging them from reporting identified problems.

An overview of aviation safety programs

When people fly on commercial airlines in New York or across the country, they often assume that the aircraft they are traveling on has been deemed safe and is free from any defects that may put their lives in danger. Yet how exactly are aircrafts proven to be safe and what types of checks and evaluations do they go through to ensure they do not pose a danger to passengers and pilots?

Is air travel really as safe as they say?

You may take flights out of New York regularly or be someone who has never flown before. Regardless of your status, one thing you probably have wondered is about how safe flying is. Everyone has concerns, which is completely understandable seeing how air accidents get a lot of attention. However, what you may not realize is air travel is incredibly safe and the numbers back it up. 

What does the FAA do?

Many agencies, organizations and companies work together to ensure commercial flights are safe for you and other New York travelers. These agencies do many things from managing air traffic to monitoring the manufacturing of airplanes. One important agency is the Federal Aviation Administration. You have likely heard of the FAA, but do you know what it does to ensure your flights are safe?

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.
