Best and Worst Aircraft Safety Record

AirlineRatings.com, the world’s first airline safety and product rating website has warned travellers from flying on the following aircrafts wich have the worst safety record in the past 10 years:  LET410, Antonov AN-12, Ilyushin 76, and CASA 212
AirlineRatings.com has completed an study over 425 airlines and crash records of 55 different aircraft in active service.

According to editor Geoffrey Thomas; “The crash records of aircraft that dominated the 1970s and 1980s but are no longer in passenger service are irrelevant today, we only looked at aircraft that are carrying passengers in 2013. We have used the Boeing database which is an industry standard and supplemented that with our own records and those of Aviation-Safety.net and Ascend. This survey also ignores piston-powered planes and smaller aircraft used mainly for charter work. Clearly flying on pure jet powered aircraft is far safer as seven out of the ten aircraft with bad crash records are turboprops.  Aircraft such as the 777, A380, A340, 717 and 787 have never had a fatality,” said Mr. Thomas
