They say statistics can prove everything or nothing. If you've been following the number of aviation incidents over the last few years you could be forgiven for thinking the world of aviation is going mad but you'd be wrong. Those who know say 2014 actually set a new record for the least number of commercial aviation accidents since the start of the airline age, with just 21 recorded.
That’s down from 29 in 2013, 23 in 2012 and 36 in 2011. Recent tragic events cast a shadow on some of the aviation safety related procedures, particularly relating to pilot mental health evaluation. It boils down to the simple fact that pilots themselves that are responsible for assessing their own mental health. The Aerotime website usually has its finger on the trigger and this time its just so what everyone is thinking but dare not give it publicity.
