Fatal Aviation Accidents in California

Although plane crashes are a mostly infrequent occurrence, small plane accidents happen more often than any other kind. In fact, 97 percent of all aviation deaths are the result of small, single-engine plane crashes as opposed to accidents involving commercial flights. These statistics add up to an average of five small plane crashes each day and approximately 500 deaths every year. Like anywhere else, aviation accidents in California are commonly fatal, leaving family members with unfair obligations in the aftermath.
