    I never believe the Nall report. It seems to be connected at the hip with the FAA positive numbers that the accident rate is down.

    Student starts and operations in General Aviation are down. So operations are down and the accident rate does not change means that accidents are really up!

    I was often told by FAA management during my time in the FAA, to change my accident report to an incident.

    The breakdown was :

    1 Accident
    2 Incident
    3 Occurence

    The accidents were the only numbers that meant anything so management was always after inspectors to rate their investigation as a "Incident"

    cooking the books on safety!o_O

    ...I know the helicopter crash numbers are bad. Worst fatal rate and total numbers in a long time!! They don't care about GA numbers!! The "regulator" will still get their annual bonus!!

    It's still being done today. Just look at the preliminary reports. They will show how they manipulate the numbers!!

    Like the Hillary Clinton investigation turned into a "Matter".
