Accident & Incident Database

Any aircraft accident is a tragedy and many of them could have been prevented. Very often nothing was wrong with the machine (aircraft). Reliability of systems has greatly improved over the decades and human error remains the biggest risk factor. But pilot errors do not just happen because of a lack of intelligence. Often wrong procedure designs or e.g. CRM issues are major contributing factors to incidents and accidents. Pilot errors can and must be reduced. To achieve this, we must learn from experiences and adapt our training accordingly.
