Injured in a Plane Crash Due to Under-Certified Pilots? Speak with an Experienced Tampa Aviation Lawyer

aviation accident

While all pilots are required by law to obtain a license before flying on their own, some pilots doing specialized jobs or tasks need further certification. That may come by extra flight hours, increased pilot in command time and cross-country flying experience.

While rare, aviation accidents sometimes do occur involving under-certified pilots. These types of tragedies may cause serious personal injuries or even deaths. They often also result in property damage. Innocent bystanders sometimes sustain significant losses when unqualified pilots assume control of airplanes or drones. 

Aviation Accidents Occur in Diverse Settings 

Most airlines exercise care in hiring and training pilots. However, significant risks may also occur through the activities of cargo planes, crop dusting planes, unmanned aircraft (i.e. drones), and privately owned and operated planes. Pilots in the air (or on the ground) operate all these types of craft. These kinds of aviation accidents can occur on the ground, during take off, in the air, or during landing.
