this year 2012 has been the safest year in aviation history,
|Summary (IATA and non-IATA airlines)||2006||2007||2008||2009||2010||2011||2012(as of 30 Nov)|
|*Fatalities include deaths due to injuries sustained in an accident up to 30 days later (ICAO/IATA definition)|
|Quoting Quokkas (Reply 8):|
The figures presented reflect only fatalities in reporting countries involving commercial carriers using western built aircraft. What do the figures look like once we include both aircraft built elsewhere and non-commercial flights?

Someone changed the title of the thread ( Moderators ). I posted "you can fly 14000 times before being in a crash", now says 14000 years....( It will be a great improvement if true !! ) .... but what I mean is that you can fly 14000 consecutive days before being in a crash, that is around 38 years, not 14000....
|Quoting ushermittwoch (Reply 11):|
Yeah, but your numbers don't add up.
|Quoting RamblinMan (Reply 4):|
That's not what the statistic means. It means the odds of being in a crash are, in general, 1 in 5.3 million. The one that crashes is probably somebody's FIRST flight.

which I would bet describes 90% or more of the posters on this site.
|Quoting Gonzalo (Reply 12):|
Not "my" numbers, this numbers came from IATA.
|Quoting stealthz (Reply 14):|
No they didn't, if you read the english lang version of the article I posted earlier you will see it reads 14,000 years not days.
The arithmetic works for 14,000 years not days.
