Plane Crash Reported in Houston County, Georgia

June 30, 2020

PERRY, GA - writes that a plane crash took place in Perry, Georgia, this week. The single-engine aircraft reportedly came down close to Moss Oak Road in a field during the early evening.*

Reports indicate that the plane had only just taken off from a private airstrip nearby when the crash occurred. Only the pilot was in the plane when it came down, and that individual’s name has not been released. It is not clear whether or how severely the pilot was injured in the accident. 

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are carrying out an investigation into the cause of the wreck. 

Small plane crash deaths account for the vast majority of people killed in aviation in the United States. These incidents are also increasing annually. In 2018, the number of such deaths rose by thirteen percent from 347 to 393. More than one person died on average in America every day that year. One of those deaths was a commercial airline passenger who was killed on a Southwest Airlines flight. That death marked the first fatality on a commercial plane in the United States in nine years. 

While the number of people dying in general aviation crashes is on the rise, the reason for this increase is not well-understood. When it comes to safety, small private planes appear to be far more hazardous than large commercial aircraft. The reason for this is at least partially the redundancies and safety features that are required by commercial airlines, but that are not mandatory in small private planes. The commercial pilots are also held to increased training standards as compared to those flying private planes.
