Excerpt
Introduction: The 1998 Annual Review of Aircraft Accident Data for U.S. Air Carrier Operations presents a statistical compilation and review of accidents that occurred in 1998 involving aircraft operated by U.S. air carriers. In addition to providing accident statistics for 1998, the review also includes general economic indicators that may influence aircraft activity for 1998 and contextual accident data from several years preceding the reporting period. Which aircraft are included in this review? This review covers accidents involving aircraft operated by U.S. air carriers under Title 14, Parts 121 and 135 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Air carriers are generally defined as operators that fly aircraft in revenue service. Title 14, also known as the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR), describes operating requirements in Part 121 and Part 135. Briefly stated, Part 121 applies to major airlines and cargo carriers that fly large transport-category aircraft while part 135 applies to commercial air carriers commonly referred to as commuter airlines (i.e., scheduled Part 135) and air taxis (i.e., nonscheduled Part 135). In March 1997, the definition of Part 121 operations changed. Prior to the change, scheduled aircraft with 30 or more seats were operated under Part 121 and those with less than 30 seats were operated under Part 135. After the change, scheduled aircraft with 10 or more seats were classified as Part 121 operations; therefore, since 1997, most carriers that once were popularly known as ?commuters? now operate under Part 121.
