Aviation Accidents Statistics

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. A preliminary monthly summary regarding U.S. Civil Aviation accidents was released by NTSB on January 8, 2014. These statistics reflect accident information entered into the database by the Office of Aviation Safety and are as current as the date of the document. In 2012, there was a total of 1453 civil aviation accidents, of which 257 were fatal and 407 fatalities were recorded. The numbers have dropped in 2013, with a total of 1206 accidents, 217 fatal and 389 fatalities.
