WHY DOESN'T AIRCRAFT ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION PREVENT ACCIDENTS?

The paper reports current General Aviation accident statistics to support the hypothesis that a significant portion of the accidents have similar causative factors. Technical/hardware deficiencies which cause accidents are normally corrected; however, human factors related deficiencies are difficult to correct. It's the role of accident investigators to determine the human factors causes for accidents so that attention can be focused on corrective/preventive measures. /Author/
