Abstract:

The airline industry is responsible for the lives of nearly half a billion people annually. As passenger loads increase, commercial air transportation grows more dangerous, and little is being done by the airlines or the Federal Aviation Administration to reverse the trend. In Collision Course, Ralph Nader and Wesley J. Smith warn that you, as an airline patron, face a growing list of perils: outmoded airline fleets, an increasing number of undertrained pilots, unreliable air traffic control equipment, aircraft maintenance fraud, inadequate inspections, insufficient crashworthiness, overcrowded airspace ... even terrorism. Nader and Smith not only reveal how the lives of airline passengers are put at risk, they also outline specific steps the airlines, the FAA, and you can take to restore commercial aviation safety and reliability.

Collision Course isn't just another expose of public endangerment by industry, nor is it merely another indictment of bureaucratic complacency. It's a call to action that could prevent thousands of unnecessary deaths and injuries. This is one book that no airline passenger, carrier, or regulator can afford to ignore.
