Private aviation is a growing industry in Arizona, and many people are interested in getting their pilot's license or hiring a private plane to take a look at the beautiful Arizona landscape from the sky. With more and more private plane crashes making the news, however, people are beginning to wonder if private air travel is safe.
Many Arizona residents prefer to travel by air, and some even enjoy being in the cockpit themselves. Whether you travel for business, leisure or recreation, the chances of an aviation accident and what would happen afterward have likely crossed your mind. You may have even already been injured and trying to understand your legal options.
The National Transportation Safety Board released an accident report concerning an airplane crash in Arizona that killed a father and his three sons. While a variety of factors were said to have contributed to the 2011 aviation accident, the errors were said to be related to a culture of "complacency" that took place among ownership of the company that operated the airplane.
