United States General Aviation Safety Data

$0 / year

This dataset gives information on the number of United States general aviation safety data. It gives information on the accident rates, seriously injured incidences, fatality rates and accidents with fatality rates on flight hours.

Complexity

The mission of Aviation safety is to accomplish the following: 1) Investigate all civil domestic air carrier, commuter, and air taxi accidents; in-flight collisions; fatal and nonfatal general aviation accidents; and certain public-use aircraft accidents, 2) Participate in the investigation of major airline crashes in foreign countries that involve U.S. carriers or U.S.-manufactured or -designed equipment to fulfill U.S. obligations under International Civil Aviation Organization agreements, and 3) Conduct investigations of safety issues that extend beyond a single accident to examine specific aviation safety problems from a broader perspective.

The Office of Aviation Safety has the responsibility for investigating domestic aviation accidents and incidents (about 1,750 annually) and for proposing probable cause for the Board’s approval. In conjunction with other offices within the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the office also works to formulate recommendations to prevent the recurrence of similar accidents and incidents, and to otherwise improve aviation safety. The Office of Aviation Safety includes a number of regional offices spread throughout the United States to ensure that NTSB personnel are within closer proximity to potential accident sites.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) promotes the open exchange of safety information in order to continuously improve aviation safety. The FAA developed the Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) system. The ASIAS system enables users to perform integrated queries across multiple databases, search an extensive warehouse of safety data, and display pertinent elements in an array of useful formats.

Near Midair Collisions (NMAC) are reported voluntarily to the FAA so these numbers may not be representative. Reporters consist of pilots of air carriers, general aviation and other aircraft involved in public-use operations. Incidents involving military aircraft may be included if they also involved a civilian aircraft

It is important to mention that accidents on foreign soil and in foreign waters are excluded. Suicide, sabotage, and stolen/unauthorized cases included in accidents, fatalities and rate computation in this dataset are: 1985 (11 accidents, 6 fatal accidents); 1990 (4, 1); 1991 (8, 5); 1992 (2, 1); 1993 (5, 4); 1994 (3, 2); 1995 (10, 6); 1996 (4, 0); 1997 (5, 2); 1998 (6, 4); 1999 (3, 1); 2000 (7, 7); 2001 (3, 1); 2002 (7, 6); 2003 (4, 3); 2004 (3, 0); 2005 (2, 1); 2006 (2, 1); 2007 (2, 2); 2008 (2, 0); 2009 (3, 0); 2010 (3, 2), 2011 (1, 0), 2012 (1, 1), 2013(3, 3), 2014(0, 0). Since April 1995, the National Transportation Safety Board has been required by law to investigate all public-use accidents, increasing the number of NTSB reported general aviation accidents by approximately 1.75%.
