According to International Air Transport Association -IATA-, the aviation security performance for 2010 shows that the year's accident percentage for Western-built jet aircrafts was the lowest in aviation history. The 2010 international accident rate (measured in hull losses per million flights of a Western-built jet aircraft) was 0.61. That is equal to 1 accident for every 1.6 million flights. This is an important improvement of the 0.71 rate recorded in 2009 (1 accident for 1.4 million flights). The 2010 ratio was the lowest in aviation history, just below the 2006 rate of 0.65. Correlated to 10 years ago, the accident ratio has been cut 42% from the rate recorded in 2001.
