Video Transcription:

When a commercial airline has an accident or a crash, it’s often said that there is no one cause. Fortunately, commercial aviation is a very safe means of travel in our modern day world. They say that the most dangerous part of any airline trip you take is the car ride you take to and from the airport. Fortunately, that’s true, but nonetheless, aviation accidents do occur. Typically, there is a combination of factors that all come to a head at once. It’s rare that weather or Acts of God are purely a cause, but weather can be a contributing factor. It’s rare that a defect or a problem with the plane is the sole cause, but it can be a contributing factor. It’s rare that pilot error is the sole cause, but it can be a contributing factor. And when you have all three of those things come together – bad weather, some sort of problem with the airplane and bad decision making by a pilot – that’s typically what causes major aviation disasters.
