How is GA doing on the Safety front? Latest Joseph T. Nall Report issued

The AOPA Air Safety Institute has released the 28th Joseph T. Nall Report.   The Nall Report analyzes data from the most recent year for which probable causes have been determined for at least 80 percent of accidents. It covers airplanes with maximum rated gross takeoff weights of 12,500 pounds or less and helicopters of all sizes, accounting for 99 percent of GA flight activity.

IFA Comment: The Nall Report analyses General Aviation (GA) accidents in United States.  That said, its messages are widely applicable as the probable causes of GA accidents are similar across the world.  Although the overall trend is favourable the “mechanical” causes accident trend is relatively static.  There’s more that can be done to drive the GA accident rates even lower.  Every improvement in the accident rate saves lives. IFA supports better training, proficiency, equipment and the safety culture to continue to improve.
