The NTSB examines the overall proportion of occupants who survive if they are in an accident involving an aircraft operated under Title 14 CFR Part 121 (generally defined as large aircraft operated by airlines and cargo carriers), and whether this has changed since the NTSB’s 2001 report. The prevalence of serious injuries in Part 121 aircraft accidents is also assessed.
