How Safe Is Flying?
Monday, April 21, 2008
Just in case your parents are concerned about safety and flying, here is an excellent (quantifiable and verifiable) statistic to convince them that a career as a pilot is indeed safe:
In May 2006, Mr. Nicholas Sabatini, the FAA's chief safety official, gave a speech to an audience of international air safety investigators. As part of his speech, he made safety statistics meaningful: He said that if you flew on a U.S. jet once a day, every day, 365 flights a year, it would be 43,000 years before you had a 50-50 chance of being in a fatal crash. In other words, the risk is almost zero.
