EASA Releases Preliminary Air Safety Figures For 2016

Provides An Overview Of Safety Statistics For Commercial Transport Airplanes

EASA has published its Preliminary Safety Review 2017. It provides an early overview of the aviation safety statistics for 2016 in the domain of Commercial Air Transport Airplanes. The reports covers both worldwide operations and those involving the 32 EASA Member States.

With 3 per million flights, the 2016 accident rate of EASA Member States is 0.0003 % of all CAT flights, and it improved by 43% compared to 2015. One fatal accident which occurred in Sweden with a cargo plane killing 2 flight crew reminded us that safety can never be taken for granted. The serious incident rate in 2016 is 16 per million flights which is an increase by 38% compared to 2015.

The most relevant relevant key risk areas continue to be Aircraft Upset, Runway Excursion and Aircraft System failure, together with their associated safety issues: Flight crew awareness, monitoring of aircraft parameters, handling of technical failures and Crew Resource Management (CRM).

According to the report, in 2016, there were 16 accidents and 100 serious incidents. While the accident rate has decreased 43%, the serious incident rate has increased 38 percent when compared with 2015. EASA will conduct a focused analysis to understand this increase.
