A large number of travelers using the plane as a means of transport are always wondering which is the safest place in the aircraft in the event of an incident. Several studies have revealed the mystery.

 

If Your Plane is Going Down, It’s Better to Sit in the Back | Smart News

Apr 2, 2013 Discovery TV crashed a Boeing 727 in the Sonoran desert to answer the question: where’s the safest place in the plane?
Airplane is the safest form of transportation in the world during this period. In 2016, for the seventh consecutive year, no person died as a result of the collapse of a plane owned by airlines in the United States of America. And experts estimate the chances for a person to die in an aviation accident are comparable to millions. Even so, individuals who often use this means of transport ask themselves what is the safest place in the plane or the safest area of ​​the plane in the event of an accident. The safety of the area depends, in fact, on the type of aviation accident, shows “Huffington Post” . Every aviation accident is unique in its own way. The impact could come from a collision with the airplane‘s nose by a forced landing on the water or on the runway, for example. Therefore, no airspace can be categorized as safe.

Where is it best to stay

 

Although there is no statistical data on the safety of certain areas in the airplane, a 2007 study looked at the major aviation accidents in 1971 to date and concluded that the passengers near the tail of the airplane had 40 % More chances to survive an impact than those who stand in front of the aircraft. The seats behind the plane, behind the side edges of the wings, had a survival rate of 69%, while the mid-air chairs had a survival rate of 56% and the 49% front, the study showed.

Another study in 2015 analyzed 17 aviation incidents, from 1985 until that date, involving both fatalities and survivors, found that the seats behind the plane had a 32% lower death rate than the seats in The face of the aircraft. Specifically, the seats in the middle of the rear section of the plane had the lowest mortality rate of 28%. On the other hand, the least secure places were those ahead of the lines behind the aircraft, which had a death rate of 44%.

Of course, there are other ways to increase your chances of survival regardless of where you are in the event of an airplane incident. Pay attention to the safety instructions, stay alert for the closest exit, but also mentally prepare for a likely accident.
