How to Look Up an Accident:

From the Aviation Accident Database, enter your search criteria, and click on “Submit Query” at the bottom of the page. A list of associated events will be listed and the column labeled “NTSB No.” is the accident number. Retrieve the factual and probable cause reports using the available links.

To retrieve the docket of supporting materials for each report, go to the Accident Dockets search page and enter the NTSB accident number. If the accident number is unknown, the other search parameters may be used. Then click on “Find” and the accident docket (or list of applicable dockets) will be provided. Click on the applicable “NTSB Accident ID” link to open the docket and access the contents. Public dockets prior to June 1, 2009, were not automatically posted to our website. If you are unable to obtain the docket online, please request using our online contact form or call 800-877-6799.
