Small Aircraft Crash Statistics

According to data from Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), an average of 1,100 small aircraft crash each year in the United States. About 75% of small aircraft crashes are improper actions or inaction by the pilot. Another 18% of crashes are attributed to mechanical problems.

About 160 small aircraft crashes cause about 280 fatalities. On the flip side, this means pilots and passengers survive a large majority of small aircraft crashes. This doesn’t mean everyone walks away with no injuries. An investigation will determine what caused the crash and who, if anyone, is responsible.

Small Aircraft Crash Investigation

There are 2 agencies to investigate every civil aircraft crash in the United States. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) investigate and provide updates about the crash. Small aircraft crash investigations can take weeks, months, or years.
