Aviation Day


So how safe is it to fly these days?  With downed flights like Egypt Air it seems the incidents are becoming more frequent.  However, according to the editor of Airlineratings.com, Geoffrey Thomas, “We are ahead of the 10-year average with eight accidents and 167 fatalities compared to the average of 10 accidents and 205 fatalities.”  CNN news recently analyzed the data and came up with some fascinating numbers and insights into airline travel around the world.  More than 3.5 billion people flew safely on 37.6 million flights (31.4 million by jet, 6.2 million by turboprop) in 2015.
