    Commerical is far safer where private is about on par with car safety.

    Aviation safety statistics are interesting.



    Flying is a lot safer for the distance traveled, but you are about 3x more likely to be killed on a flight than on a car ride.

    It would seem those of you considering a space shuttle as your primary means of transportation really have some thinking to do.

    That would be true if you took one flight for each car ride. The rest of us are still much more likely to die in a car accident.

    I vote for small aircraft, that I am piloting. If the world is going to hell in a bucket, I want to hold the handle.
