Newer technology could record helpful plane crash data

Traveling by plane is getting safer each year. While the number of travelers flying out of airports in Texas and beyond increases, the number of accidents, injuries and fatalities continues to decline. However, a spokesperson for the National Transportation Safety Board believes that even one plane crash is too many, and that it is past time to replace old methods with new technology.

Balloon aviation accident raises cries for stricter regulations

This past July, Texas witnessed the worst hot air balloon accident in the country's history when 16 people died after their balloon hit a power line and burst into flames. One congressman from Texas took it personally when the Federal Aviation Administration rejected his request for more regulations for the balloon tour industry. He notes that the National Transportation Safety Board made a similar request of the FAA in 2014, warning that a balloon aviation accident was imminent. 

Texas plane crash takes the life of pilot and passenger

Labor Day weekend is typically spent having the last celebration before summer ends. Many people in Texas gather for picnics or fireworks, and others spend the time enjoying their favorite recreation, such as boating or biking. For one man, flying was his hobby, and his Labor Day was spent sharing his passion with his friends. Unfortunately, the celebration ended in tragedy as a plane crash took the lives of the pilot and his passenger.

Texas aviation accident renews call for balloon tour regulations

Gliding through the sky in a hot air balloon is like a fantasy for some. People will gladly pay high fees for a few moments of rising above the earth and floating peacefully over civilization. However, an aviation accident involving a hot air balloon seems to be a more frequent occurrence lately. A recent balloon tragedy in Texas has stirred up an old disagreement between two government agencies responsible for the safety of travelers.

Texas man suffers brain injury when truck plows into crash scene

Injuries to the head can be life-changing. If a person survives an accident that causes a traumatic brain injury, the victim may face a lifetime of medical procedures and physical therapy. Additionally, the person's family may be profoundly affected by the injury. A Texas man and his family are learning that now as he fights to recover from an accident that nearly took his life.

Seeking compensation after an aviation accident

Air traffic involving different types of aircraft in Texas is increasing at a rapid pace. While traveling by air is typically regarded as a safe means of travel, a single aviation accident can claim multiple lives and/or injure many people. Recovery of damages brought about by a plane crash may be pursued, but navigating such claims may be difficult.

Plane crash claims 2 lives in Texas

Two people lost their lives in an aviation accident in Texas on a recent Tuesday morning. The National Transportation Safety Board has launched an investigation into the plane crash that occurred at the Elmdale Airpark in Abilene. A preliminary accident report is expected to be ready within seven to 10 days.

Holding drone owners accountable for aviation accident injuries

When last we posted about drones and the dangers they pose to pilots and to the public in general, federal officials were mulling over proposed FAA regulations aimed at placing some type of oversight and controls on operators of the high-flying devices. You can now remove the word “proposed” from those regulations.

Making it possible to establish liability in an aviation accident

They may appear to be nothing more than toys for adults, but drones pose a significant risk to aircraft operations according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The agency claims to receive 100 reports each month of drones being flown close enough to aircraft to cause a helicopter accident or even a fatal aviation accident.
