AS9100 Certifications and Tech Advancements Make Flying Perfectly Safe
People who’ve been told that flying is the safest mode of travel in the world may have reacted in two different ways: they took the assumption for granted, or howled in disbelief. Despite how some may doubt the safety of air travel, however, there are solid facts to back up the claim. Aurelio Locsin of Demand Media cites data from the National Transportation Safety Board which indicates that flying accounts for nearly zero accidents per million flying miles; and that driving is technically more dangerous--5 million accidents to a mere 20 for aircraft, with 1.27 fatalities and 80 injuries per 1 million miles compared to flying’s zero deaths and almost zero injuries per 1 million miles.
