OK, I know this is kind of off topic (well, its still about commercial aviation so maybe not...! ) I have to write an essay about aviation safety and first I have to start out about what an average person (which most of us aren't, at least when it comes to aviation!) think of aviation safety. Then I have to reveal shocking information about aviation safety that is reverse of what an average person thinks of aviation safety. For example, most people think trantula (a spider) is a horrible creature when in fact they are quite harmless. Get the idea? OK, anyone got an imput on what average people think of aviation safety and what is actually true abut it?? It would be much appreciated!!!
