Airplane Crashes in Louisiana

New Orleans, LA - 2 Killed In Airplane Crash Near Morrison Rd & Jourdan RdWhile commercial planes are relatively safe, small planes can put occupants at risk. Around 97 percent of all aviation fatalities do not happen on a commercial aircraft. There is an average of five serious small-plane crashes each day, resulting in around 500 deaths each year. 

These crashes are largely unexpected by those involved. Many times, they are the result of a pilot that lacks proper experience. Sadly, many of the accidents result in fatal injuries.
