Small Plane Safety Risks

Many enjoy the thrill of riding in a small passenger plane. Others enjoy the convenience it brings and ease of travel. Some people even take classes and obtain their pilot licenses to be able to have the freedom to fly whenever they choose. However, if pilots do not exercise caution, accidents can occur. Recently, on Long Island, a single engine plane crashed killing the pilot and injuring the passenger.

Many enjoy the thrill of riding in a small passenger plane. Others enjoy the convenience it brings and ease of travel. Some people even take classes and obtain their pilot licenses to be able to have the freedom to fly whenever they choose. However, if pilots do not exercise caution, accidents can occur. Recently, on Long Island, a single engine plane crashed killing the pilot and injuring the passenger.

The National Transportation Safety Board has cited loss of pilot control in general aviation on its “most wanted” list for critical changes to be made in transportation. It is imperative that pilots of small planes receive proper training. Most of the accidents that occur are due to pilot loss of control and can be prevented by using appropriate recovery techniques before stalling, as well as recognizing and managing distractions. Another major reason for private plane crashes is due to their lack of safety features to fly in low visibility situations. Unlike commercial flights, single engine planes do not have backup navigational systems or engines.

Additionally, the FAA has alerted private pilots regarding the use of both prescription and non-prescription medications while flying.

Although the accident rate for corporate jet flights is very low (1 death per 100,000 hours), over the last ten years the rate of fatalities in personal plane accidents has gone up by 25 percent.

If you are planning a ride in a single engine plane, make sure that the pilot’s safety training is up to date. Private pilots are required to complete a training course every two years. Additionally, inquire about the safety system in the plane. Many newer planes have improved computer safety systems installed that were not available a few years ago. These systems have increased reliability and visibility in both flight and landing. However, it is best to avoid flying in inclement weather.

If you have been injured as a passenger in a single engine plane due to a pilot’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can advise you of your legal rights and remedies.   Call the attorneys at the Law Office of McGuire & Pelaez, P.C. today at (631) 348-1702.

Brett has been a rockstar for us. Unfortunately we have had a couple of issues with my youngest, the last one being a speeding ticket. Brett handled it professionally for us, saving us the aggravation of travel for a court appearance. He was able to get the points penalty removed and just had to pay a fine that was manageable. Well worth it vs the headache of what our insurance would have been like! If I am in this situation again, I know who my family will be turning to.

They were absolutely great! My insurance didn't go through to the DMV properly so I got pulled over & the cop was a jerk. Wrote me a bunch of unnecessary tickets. I was really struggling financially as well & couldn't miss work over this, so they were so kind to work out an arrangement with me. Very thankful for this group of lawyers

This is the most helpful law office I've ever dealt with. Through the past few years they have handled traffic citations for each of my teen boys, who are otherwise good drivers but unfortunately experienced mishaps. In every case they were responsive and effective and have saved us significant money by working with the court to reduce or eliminate penalties and points. Highly recommended.
Great help. Chris really helped me understand what needed to be done. Thank you guys!

Just Stop It!! Stop searching the Internet for a good lawyer to handle your traffic tickets. M, P & B are the best, so look no further. No, I am not a friggin cheerleader, nor am I being compensated to write a good review. Actually, I did receive something from Mr. Bennett and his team of professionals: Great Results!! I'm just a 50 something years-old Army veteran, and a guy who busts his a$$ every day to make a modest living. I don't have the time or money for mediocre results. When it comes to lawyers, I tend to be a bit skeptical, cynical and judgemental, but M, P & B (Mr. Bennett and his team, in particular) made me a believer. Thanks again, guys and gals at McGuire, Palaez & Bennett 👍👍

I hired Brett and his team to help restore my license which was suspended/revoked for years due to points/accidents. Fairly priced… after trying to take care of it on my own (paying fines and taking classes) I hired Brett, they did everything they could even after I moved from NY to FL, everyone who I spoke to was very helpful ESPECIALLY Daslin, she told me everything I needed to do and calmed me down when I thought I’d never get my license. Well it took some time but I am officially a LICENSED DRIVER! If you are having license problems don’t hesitate to call them, you won’t regret it. They even sent me my $100 money order back that went unused after my license was restored. 5 ⭐️’s

We are very grateful that we got Mr. McGuire to represent us for our case! Mr. McGuire is extremely helpful and professional, he stayed on top of everything for us, and most importantly he helped us to achieve the result that we wanted. Mr. McGuire always open to talk and provided his professional opinions to guide us through the whole process. And his colleague Mr. Sorell was also helpful to support us at the final meeting. I can't say enough good things about Mr. McGuire and his firm, I really appreciated everything they have done for us, thank you very much!
