Now there is roughly one major accident per 1 million
flights with increased air traffic by 2015 there would be one
fatal crash a week. (CNN.com) So in the near future if
stricter regulations are not placed on the people building,
inspecting and flying these planes. Future airplane
crashes will be responsible for killing hundreds of people a
week. Air safety is also important because it effects
America?s economy. American airlines alone logged 9.5 million
scheduled flights in 1997and had 625 passengers. (Gaffney
There are four areas where air safety needs to be
improved. The most important area is human error which has
caused over 70 percent of airline accidents since 1950. Other
important areas of air safety is finding better and more
accurate ways of predicting the weather. Security needs to be
increased in the ways of detecting weapons and explosives.
The final area of air safety that needs to be improved is the
detection of mechanical failure.
Since 1950 over 70 percent of airline accidents have
been caused by Human error. The reason is simple while all
other aspects of air travel have been improved, human
behavior still has its age-old imperfections.
