    As a pilot, I’ve spent thousands of hours in the flight deck of an airliner, corporate business jets, turboprops and down to the small 2-seaters and I whole-heartedly agree…FLYING IS SAFE! I also agree with the seat belt rule. Always stay buckled up. We get forecasts of turbulence before we take off and we always get ride reports from other pilots ahead of us so that we can give our passengers and flight attendants as much heads up as possible but unexpected turbulence can happen anytime! AS A MOM I also agree…a separate seat for baby/toddler is worth it’s weight in gold for all the above reasons!

    From what I understand, it’s about turbulence more than anything else: most flying injuries have to do with turbulence, when people aren’t buckled in and end up clunking their heads on the luggage compartments, etc. in turbulence. And the differences in the sections of the plane aren’t about turbulence but rather about the sorts of accidents that happen on the ground, e.g. overshooting the runway. Correct me if I’m wrong…

    The next time I fly, I will have to remember to book a seat in the back and revisit this post to remind myself why planes are safe. I know they are, but it’s always good to hammer that into your head when your imagination starts going wild.
