Tips for Flying Safe
Airplane accidents typically occur due to poor weather, but sometimes they can occur due to mechanical failure as well as pilot error. Statistically, most accidents take place during a planes climb or descent. This indicates that, by taking fewer flights, an individual can decrease their risk of accident. One suggested tip for safe flying is to take nonstop flights, rather than flights that involve transfers and layovers. It may also be a good idea to choose a plane that is larger and can carry more passengers. According to federal and industry standards, larger planes are more closely regulated and monitored. This is a good indicator that larger planes are safer planes. Remember though, these suggestions are based on statistics and cannot guarantee a safe flight.
In the event of an accident, it is important to abide by all rules of the airline. This requires paying attention to flight attendants, properly storing your overhead and personal items, and keeping your seat belt fastened when that is necessary. Airplane passengers who are injured because they failed to listen and abide by the rules may not be entitled to compensation, since they may be considered liable for their own injuries. In the event of an airplane emergency, the flight attendants and captain will direct passengers to fasten their seatbelts and possibly even use their oxygen masks. It is important not to panic in these instances, as this may cause greater incident. Overall, passengers should do all that depends on them to maintain safety. Even so, accidents can still occur.
