While business aircraft flight hours are down from last year, industry safety has increased disproportionately, according to business aviation safety analyst Robert E. Breiling Associates. In the first half of the year, the U.S. business airplane fleet experienced 13 accidents, down from 34 in the same period last year, a 62-percent drop. Fatal accidents declined from 10 in the first six months of last year to three in the first half of 2009.

“What we need to do is always lean into the future. When the world changes around you and when it changes against you—what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind—you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy. ”
