2009 Joseph T. Nall Report

The number of non-commercial fixed-wing general aviation accidents decreased 5.3% from 2007 to 2008 (from 1,324 to 1,254), but this reflected a decrease in flight activity as well as a slight reduction in the accident rate. The 236 fatal accidents and 433 individual deaths were the lowest on record, but the fatal accident rate remained close to its historic average. The number of accidents caused by fuel mismanagement continues to decrease, down 54% from 1999. The commercial fixed-wing GA accident rate jumped to its highest level in five years but was still almost one-third lower than the non-commercial rate, while the safety record of both commercial and non-commercial helicopter flights have shown impressive improvements since 2003.
