I can think of a few major candidates, effects that improve safety without being directly related to it — two of which are higher fuel prices and fewer pilots. As fuel prices rise, pilots fly less, especially those, to state the obvious, who are most sensitive to high fuel prices. I’d venture that some of these pilots are the ones who are most likely to have accidents, because they fly less, train less and fly older, less-capable equipment. Is it a bad thing that safety improves because some of the higher-risk pilots aren’t flying as much as they used to? I don’t think so. Indeed, if we could somehow know in advance which pilots would have accidents, it would be our duty to stop them from flying. I think you’d all agree. After all, many, many lives would be saved.
