It seems like every week, the Houston Chronicle, San Antonio Express, or Austin Statesman runs an article about a plane crash that injures or kills Texans. Almost always, these crashes involving private aircraft often piloted by non-professional pilots. Often the causes of these crashes are determined to be pilot error but someones that can relate to other issues.
In 2011, approximately 494 people died as a result of aviation related accidents. Air travel remains one of the safest ways to travel, but accidents with devastating consequences still occur.
