Sightseeing Plane Crash Lawyer
Sightseeing aircraft are often chartered; for example, tourists interested in seeing sights from the air can find many sightseeing aircraft companies at locations such as the Grand Canyon, the Hawaiian Islands, and Yosemite, Yellowstone, and other national parklands. Seeing the grandeur of nature from the air can be a thrilling experience of a lifetime.
Sightseers should be aware that small planes and helicopters need to adhere to the same strict safety guidelines as any major airline — especially those regarding the:
- flight-worthiness of the plane or helicopter
- experience and fitness of the pilot
- safety of the airport or landing strip used for take-off and landing
- weather, which is particularly important for such small aircraft (even jets)
- safety record of the company offering the sightseeing tours
Sightseeing flights have provided millions of hours of enjoyment for tourists across the U.S. and around the world. There's nothing quite like seeing natural wonders like the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reefs in Australia, the glaciers in Alaska and the many treasured national parks the world has to offer. Sightseeing flights also provide a wonderful way to see historical landmarks such as battlefields and fantastic day- or nighttime skylines of exciting metropolises like New York from the air.
Sightseeing Flight Injuries
Unfortunately, injuries due to collisions, crashes and malfunctions of sightseeing aircraft do occur from time to time. Sightseeing flight accident injuries can be serious and can include disfiguring and painful burns, broken bones, crushing injuries, traumatic head injuries, spinal cord injuries and more.
Types of Aircraft Accidents and Injuries
In some sightseeing aircraft collisions and plane crashes, the pilot may be found negligent if he or she "pushed the envelope" or took a risk in order to enable his or her passengers to see a particular sight, despite weather conditions or other circumstances that should have prevented the risk-taking. The temptation for a pilot or sightseeing company to impress their customers can be strong.
