Airplane accidents can be seriously harmful and are often fatal because of the high speeds of travel and the large numbers of passengers on board. Unfortunately, there are many potential human errors that can result in very serious accidents that take lives. Flying is extremely complex and can be very dangerous; it is important to make sure that everyone involved is taking every possible safety precaution.
Pilot error. Pilots have a huge responsibility to protect the lives that are in their hands when they fly, and they need to approach their job with the appropriate outlook. Pilot errors are the most common form of mistake that can cause a plane to crash.
Faulty equipment/design. Because the physics involved in flying are extremely precise, it is important that the design of the planes is as good as it can be. It is also important that airline personnel inspect the equipment as often as regulations require so that the chances of a mechanical malfunction are minimized.
Tower error. Air traffic controllers have the crucial task of keeping pilots and planes out of each other’s way. Pilots rely heavily on them for air traffic reports, directions on where and when to land, and weather updates.
Passenger awareness. It is also important for passengers to be calm and obey the stated guidelines for passenger behavior, as this allows the airline staff to do their jobs more effectively.
