Abstract : The study of the cost of general aviation accidents is designed to provide the Federal Aviation Agency with a technique to estimate the annual dollar losses resulting from operational accidents in general aviation. The results should be useful in assisting management to arrive at the decisions involving accident prevention programs. The losses are separated by structural damage to aircraft; by medical costs resulting from injuries to aircraft occupants or to third parties; and by damage to property. The economic losses caused by fatal injuries are also estimated. (Author)
