Most aircraft accidents are caused by a chain of events rather than just one error. Flight Chain App helps you see accident trends so you can prevent those accidents from happening in your own flying and become a better pilot.
The vast majority of accidents are preventable. By reading accident reports, you'll learn what not to do. And you'll be a safer pilot because of it.
Reading accident reports and looking for trends can help prevent future accidents. Viewing NTSB reports by trend can help you know when accidents are likely to happen so you can improve your decision-making skills.
We were surprised by a flight instructor's observation who, after more than 40 years of flying, was amazed at how many pilots of various experience levels aren't aware of the value of NTSB reports.

Because a bird strike can happen suddenly and without warning, it must be impossible for pilots to plan for, and mitigate the risk of, bird strikes. Or is it? I recently came across an interesting website that uses data to help pilots mitigate the risk of experiencing a deadly bird strike.
In 2017 during an annual airshow at Duxford, England, British warbird pilot Mark Levy was flying a P-51 Mustang when he experienced an intermittent partial engine failure. In a conversation with the Air Safety Institute, Levy discussed the entire sequence and important lessons learned every pilot should know.
John Young worked for NASA for 42 years as an astronaut and served in other vital roles with a focus on engineering, operations and safety. In his book, Young discusses NASA's successes and failures, particularly the losses of the space shuttles Challenger and Columbia, lessons that can apply to all pilots.
