Is The ERJ The Safest Airplane?

Looking through accident statistics and accident photos on here, I noticed the ERJ has never been in a major crash with loss of life or hull. Now, I realize there are other types that also have clean accident records, but the ERJ has been in service for 14 years. Is there another passenger commercial aircraft that has been in service that long with that clean of a safety record?

There have been hull losses, but luckily no fatalities.

777? A couple hull losses, but no fatalities to my knowledge.

The Boeing 777 has no passenger fatalities. A refueler in DEN died several years ago in a refueling accident involving a BA 777. One hull loss of course, the BA 777 at LHR.

Quoting Brick (Reply 3):

That shouldn't count however, or else we'd also have to consider the occupants of the GOL 737 that was hit by the Embraer..

I count 3 confirmed ERJ hull losses, wih 2 more probable (SA Airlink in December, and SATENA overrun on May 5) and another possible on Jan 21 (Aeromexico connect excursion with MLG failure).

When you get down to the number of accidents compared to the numbers in service and the number of flights, all commercial airplanes are amazingly safe.

For the safest aircraft award, do not forget the Dassault Mercure.
So sad it has been a comercial failure.
No loss in its entire life with Air Inter.

Having a clean record and being the safest airplane are two very different questions. The former, people can list aircraft without any incident. The latter is probably impossible to answer in a meaningful way.
