Aircraft Crashes

Volume 453: debated on Monday 27 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what aircraft crashes there have been in England in each of the last five years; which of these involved a Cessna 206 aircraft; and in which cases there were resulting fatalities. (103385)

The following table details the number of reportable accidents and incidents in the UK over the last five years investigated by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB), in accordance with the Civil Aviation (Investigation of Air Accidents and Incidents) Regulations 1996.

The Report Form figure indicates accidents/incidents in the UK dealt with by correspondence only, with a report form being completed by the commander of an aircraft.

The Field figure represents the more serious accidents and incidents investigated by a team of AAIB inspectors, usually deployed to the scene of an accident/incident. This Field figure includes all fatal accidents in the UK (also quoted separately).
