While Boeing safety statistics attribute 80% of all aviation accidents today to human errors (pilot, mechanic, or air traffic controller error, etc.), compared to just 20% in the last century, accidents caused by maintenance related human errors is understated. Today, maintenance errors are the second leading cause of airline accidents behind pilot error, where this phenomenon poses an increasingly greater threat to aviation safety. The purpose of this project will be to evaluate the relationship between maintenance related human factors errors and Part 145 aircraft maintenance organizations.
