You have heard it’s one of the safest forms of transportations, it’s by far the fastest (at least until tele transportation becomes available) and most convenient, it allows you to travel over 3,500 miles from New York to London in less than half a day, this voyage would take no less than 2 weeks by boat.

Flying is as affordable as it’s ever been (mainly due to the drop in crude oil) and it’s extremely popular, there are over 10,000 registered aircraft in the air right this very moment.

With all these planes cheaply flying around the world, it’s expected for us to ask: is flying on commercial planes safe of dangerous?
