    Re: What is the main cause for plane crashes?

    Approximately 80% of all aircraft accidents occur shortly before or during take-off and landing. Human error is estimated to be a major cause in 85% of all aircraft accidents. Mid-flight disasters are rare, although not entirely unheard of. Some causes of aviation accidents include, but are not limited to:

    ■Air Traffic Controller Errors
    ■Airplane Design or Structural Problems
    ■Fueling Errors
    ■Improper Maintenance
    ■Lack of Communication
    ■Mechanical Failure
    ■Midair Collision
    ■Pilot Drowsiness
    ■Pilot Errors
    ■Pilot Substance Abuse
    ■Sabotage and Terrorism
    ■Violations of FAA Regulations
