The answer is: Flying is an extremely safe proposition. While your odds of being involved in a fatal aviation accident are along the lines of 1 in 10 million, your odds of being involved in a road accident, by way of comparison, are only 1 in 100. And flying with the top airlines almost literally doubles your odds for a safe flight. However, aviation accidents do happen, with much more extreme results than road accidents. Aviation accidents are most commonly linked to three primary sources: Pilot error, aircraft mechanical errors, and inclement weather – including lightning strikes, heavy winds, hazardous storms, and fog. Other potential causes of aviation accidents exist, such as air traffic control mistakes, cabin or cargo hold fires, bird strikes, and even sabotage.
