2015: The Year in Aviation

2015: The Year in Aviation

The year 2015 has ended, and with the end of a year typically comes a slew of retrospectives reviewing what has been accomplished during the year. We would like to come at the topic from a slightly different angle – what was 2015 like for the aviation industry?

We’ll take a look at what aviation news sticks out and see what role pilots and those who hold airline jobs played in the year. Without further ado, here is 2015: The Year in Aviation.

General Overview

You might think 2015 was one of the deadliest years in aviation since the Wright Brothers began flying if you include two high-profile crashes that resulted in the death of 374 people. But, those crashes – a Germanwings A320 in March and a Metrojet A321 in October – were both caused deliberately, and they account for the vast majority of fatalities in 2015.

According to the Aviation Safety Network, there were 14 other fatal crashes during the year for a total of 186 other deaths. Without the two deliberate crashes, then, 2015 ranks as the safest year ever for flying by number of fatal accidents.

With worldwide air traffic of 34 million flights, this makes an accident rate of one fatal passenger flight accident per 4.8 million flights.

Below are some of the top stories in aviation news in 2015:

January

A volcanic eruption in Tonga spews so much ash into the atmosphere that international flights to and from the country are cancelled for days.
