A bad year for the Commonwealth of Independent States who have gone up 7 points from zero.
I guess as safety practices improve throughout the world, you would expect the accident rate to reduce and then tail out, the same with everything?
Still it isn't a statistic you want to see too often is it?
AirSpace - more than just hot air
I really don't think such statistics can be used to prove anything. The huge jumps such as the one in CIS countries show that taking such figures separately for each year doesn't prove anything.
They should really release these as averages. Otherwise it's just meaningless numbers.

Yeah completely agree Laen, you can only get trends out of these types of statistics as there are so many variables to each accident.
Oh no... This is bad. They should not stop until there are planes flying all over the world, then they should go on and on enhancing technologies for safer flights.
So true. In fact, in every other year there should be new improvements or gadgets that helped aircraft for safer trip.
