Just because major airlines don’t often have injuries or deaths associated with them doesn’t mean that plane crashes are rare. Small aircraft that only carry a handful of people, crash much more often and have a higher chance of leading to serious injury or death. Aviation accidents are typically a result of pilot negligence.
