Safer Skies: An Accident Investigator on Why Planes Crash and the State of Aviation Safety by David Soucie & Ozzie Cheek

The past and future of airline safety—a memoir of successes, crashes, and near misses—by a former FAA accident inspector.

Boarding an airplane strikes at least a small sense of fear into most people. Even though we all have heard that the odds of being struck by lightning are greater than the odds of perishing in a plane crash, it still doesn't feel that way. Airplane crashes might be rare, but they do happen, and they're usually fatal. David Soucie insists that most of these deaths could be prevented.

He's worked in the cockpit, on the hangar floor, within the aviation boardroom, and inside the Washington, DC, beltway. He's seen death up close and personal—deaths of colleagues and friends that might have been prevented if he had approved certain safety measures in the aircraft they were handling. Years of experience have led Dave to become an impassioned consultant on the topic of airline safety. This includes not only advising the Obama administration, but also the Department of Transportation, the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, NASA, and the Office of National Intelligence. Soucie was also a lead consultant and analyst for coverage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which went missing in March 2014.

Find out the truth about airplane safety and discover what the future holds for air travel in Safer Skies.
