This paper examines aircraft accidents and the way that they have always been scrutinized very carefully. It provides a statistical summary of commercial jet aircraft accidents and discusses improvements in technology that is designed to minimize aircraft accidents. The paper also looks at other steps that have been taken to improve the safety of flying in aircrafts.

Statistical Summary of Commercial Jet Aircraft Accidents

From the Paper:

"Understanding the mean time between failure (MTBF) and the rate of failure of equipment in aircrafts in-depth can also be better modeled if history of the aircraft is known. Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) places great emphasis on analysis of historical data for identifying the schedule and planning the maintenance programs for any industry. As any computerized system offers the quickest and the most efficient manner of analyzing large quantities of data in the shortest possible time, any investment in the setting up of an on-line maintenance program monitoring system would prove to be beneficial for an aircraft operator. In addition, the connectivity that it provides would also help all other relevant interested parties in the process also monitor the aircraft as needed by law. The ability to replicate the functionality and simulate the actual operations and the subsequent maintenance requirements can also help decision makers identify problems and errors in the planning process."
