Why Do Plane Crashes Occur?
Private Plane Crashes
Our experts have concluded the following are the reasons why most plane crashes occur:
- Inadequate Maintenance regulations: airlines both private and public on average are subject to fewer maintenance regulations than commercial airliners which require their jets to undergo regular checks and inspections between flights.
- Location, unfortunately, some private flights are in rural, bucolic and tropical locations and therefore flight paths are unique and being used for the first time. The difference is that commercial airliners all have set routes and essentially fly on those routes. Bad weather and strange new geographical locations can challenge the pilot’s training, skill and knowledge.
- Distractions. Unfortunately, pilot error occurs because there of a distraction which can cause the plane to lose control. It is vitally important to be focused at all times and unfortunately this occurs with private pilots.
- Inadequate Pilot training. Lastly, pilot training must be equal to that in commercial aviation which it never is because commercial aviation is strictly licensed, bonded and carries continuous education requirements. Private plane pilots do not fly every day and these planes does have the type of emergency procedures that commercial airlines are mandated to have by the federal government.
Commercial Airline Accidents
Luckily, there has not been a commercial airline American air flight death since 2009 with the exception of the tragic April 16th, 2018 occurrence on the Southwest flight from La Guardia, New York to Dallas when the engine blew apart and a turbine blade killed an innocent passenger on a Southwest 737 jet.

Helicopter crashes occur due to the following: flying with an unsafe load, poor maintenance, bad weather or pilot error. What fails in a chopper crash will be a gear box, main road or engine heads.
Helicopter crashes are extremely dangerous and cause significant injuries, including head and neck, quadriplegia, brain injuries, etc.
