Numerous safety concerns regarding Allegiant Air has prompted aviation experts to speak out claiming they believe an aviation accident is likely to occur. In recent months, there are been multiple incidents where Allegiant Air flights were forced to make emergency landings because of mechanical defects. In fact, since the beginning of last year, there were 25 safety incidents including a plane running out of fuel, a plane’s engine losing power, and a plane prematurely lifted off the ground due to improper maintenance. Experts are urging the Federal Aviation Administration to get involved in an attempt to prevent a plane crash.
Aviation accidents occur hundreds of times a year and rarely leave any survivors. Plane crashes occur due to mechanical defects, negligent air traffic controllers, and reckless piloting. All of these examples indicate that most aviation accidents are preventable. The negligent parties should be held responsible for the damages they’ve caused.
