What is an Aviation Accident?
An aviation accident is an occurrence directly associated with the operation of an aircraft. An incident that occurs between the time a person boards an aircraft with the intention to fly and the time the last person deplanes, in which a person on the aircraft is seriously or fatally injured and the aircraft sustains damage, is considered an aviation accident. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) investigate aviation accidents in the U.S.
