Aircraft accidents are more common than we would like to think despite the recent history of air carrier safety records. While commercial airline flight activity accounts for a large percentage of flight hours worldwide, general aviation flight hours remain a significant portion of total worldwide aircraft flight hours. General aviation aircraft perform a myriad of jobs around the world ranging from student pilot instruction to cargo transportation and emergency evacuation helicopter flights. Add to that military flight hours and it is easy to see the skies are certainly busy, and getting busier.
