How safe is flight training?

What are the risks of being a pilot?

At Mish Aviation flying school our pilots are the best trained and most prepared. They receive extensive training and flight experience cross country, at night and by instrument before they are qualified to be your pilot. All that training represents more than a smooth flight, it means they are ready when the unplanned happens. In this series, see how training and experience matter when pilots encounter the unexpected at 20,000 feet in the skies.

Statistics show that student pilots have some of the lowest accident rates. When you’re working on your pilot’s license, you would be flying with highly trained pilots with thousands of hours of flight experience. A commercial pilot flying today is required to meet rigorous training, qualification, and experience standards, and every airline flight must have two qualified pilots at the controls at any given time. .

You don’t need statistics to understand that travelling over a hundred miles an hour thousands of feet in the air with tanks of flammable fuel is potentially dangerous. If you have not yet perfected your skills then things can get very dangerous in deed. 

Is being a pilot a safe job?

That responsibility requires high levels of vigilance on the job, which leads to stress-related health issues such as insomnia. Pilots also face a variety of health risks that are unique to their job, including deep vein thrombosis and dehydration.

In both airplanes and helicopters, the rate of fatal accidents per 100,000 hours flown during training is less than half the rate on noninstructional flights and the non-instructional rates are tamped down by the corporate and executive sector, in which fatalities are almost unknown
