5 Dangerous Pilot Errors

Statistically, airplane accidents happen less frequently than car accidents. However, when aircraft accidents do occur, they are catastrophic and often deadly. Thus, it is important that everyone involved in aviation—from maintenance crews to air traffic controllers—act responsibly in order to avoid accidents. Unfortunately, though, sometimes pilots make terrible errors or operate planes or helicopters recklessly, endangering themselves as well as all passengers on board.

When you travel via plane or helicopter, you should be able to trust the pilot to take his or her flying responsibilities seriously. If a pilot makes a critical error, or is generally negligent, you may be left facing devastating consequences. To learn more about how to seek justice for your aviation accident injuries, contact an experienced Louisville accident lawyer of the Sampson Law Firm today by calling 502-584-5050.

Five Potentially Deadly Pilot Mistakes

Pilots must undergo lengthy training and have years of experience before they are permitted to fly passenger aircraft. However, despite this careful preparation, sometimes pilots make terrible errors that put their passengers in danger. Five common pilot mistakes include:

  • Using controlled substances while flying
  • Disregarding air traffic controllers’ warnings or advice
  • Disregarding bad weather conditions that make flying unsafe
  • Not attending to cockpit warnings / alarms
  • Failure to read gauges and instruments correctly

When aircraft pilots commit these potentially deadly errors, they can be held accountable for any ensuing damages.
