Yet, for every 100,000 flights you take on a US Carrier, you can expect to be involved in about 1.05 accidents. Thankfully, agencies like the Federal Aviation Administration and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics provide trustworthy data that involves airplane safety guidelines and also review airplane crash safety each year.
