The Expert evaluates plane crashes! Following the crash in Pakistan, Asst. Prof. Dr. S. Haluk Kul, an expert on aircraft accidents and case studies, made evaluations and talked about the measures that can be taken to prevent possible accidents. Haluk Kul said: “Looking at the world average, 1 and a half million people die in traffic accidents annually. But airplane accidents don’t come up as much as traffic accidents.” Kul also stressed that the airline is the most reliable way of transportation. As a result of the failure of Airbus A320 passenger aircraft engines belonging to Pakistan International Airlines, it fell into a residential area in the city of Karachi. Flight PK8303 carried 91 passengers and 8 crew members. The plane from Lahore, one of the busiest airports in the country, to Cinnah International Airport in Karachi, fell in the second landing attempt, 97 people died. Along with the technical problems that have been on the agenda after each plane crash that caused all people on the plane to die, the question of how reliable air transportation is again on the agenda. However, when we look at the deaths in the world average, it is noted that the most reliable mode of transportation is still the airway. Plane Accidents and Case Studies Trainer from Istanbul Gelisim University, Asst. Prof. Dr. S. Haluk Kul said that with the developing technology and the measures to be taken, plane accidents are decreasing every year. You can visit www.gelisim.edu.tr to see the detailed news.
