According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), air travel is expected to double over the next 20 years. As air traffic increases, so does the risk that passengers will be involved in an aviation accident. Air travel is widely considered to be a safe means of transportation, but when accidents do occur they often result in injuries that are severe and/or fatalities. The financial losses also tend to be high. Private aircraft accidents are more frequent than people realize, because many of these incidents go under-reported in the media. Helicopter, ultralight, hang gliders and other aircraft all have inherent risks of an accident, injury or death. Even non aircraft accidents at an airport can be serious.
