Conclusion and Implications

From the Paper:

"Ever since Orville Wright first flew in 1903, industry analysts have strived to devise ways to improve the safety of air transportation. The possibilities of air travel became apparent during World War I and the first professional aircraft designers concentrated on developing a safe design to transport people and cargo (Gibbs-Smith, 1967). These early years brought about innovations to basic aircraft design and propulsion systems. Frank Whittle's gas turbine engine idea was the single most momentous development in the 20th century, a development that not only improved the performance of aircraft, but also eventually improved the overall safety and reliability of aircraft transportation (Dempsey & Gesell, 1997)."
