Excerpt
Introduction: The National Transportation Safety Board?s Annual Review of Aircraft Accident Data: U.S. Air Carrier Operations is a statistical review of U.S. commercial aviation accidents that occurred in calendar year 2000. In addition to accident statistics, the review provides general economic and aviation industry indicators that may have influenced aircraft activity during the year. Accident data for the 9 years preceding calendar year 2000 provide an historical context. 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. Part 121 operations must adhere to specific requirements that address routes, airports, aircraft maintenance, and crew performance. These requirements limit Part 121 operations to controlled airspace and to controlled airports that are characterized by specific weather, navigational, operational, and maintenance support. Part 135 operations must adhere to similar requirements (with some notable differences with respect to aircraft and airport characteristics and to crew training and experience). However, Part 135 operations are allowed to service routes to smaller airports that do not have the weather, communications, and navigational capabilities required of the larger airports serving Part 121 operations. This typically means that Part 121 applies to major airlines and cargo carriers that fly large transport-category aircraft while Part 135 applies to commercial air carriers flying smaller jet and turboprop aircraft commonly referred to as commuter airlines (that is, scheduled Part 135) and air taxis (that is, on demand Part 135).
