Data collected by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) shows that while the United States saw an overall decline in the number of nonfatal Aviation Accidents involving business jets last year, there was an significant increase in fatal accidents involving these aircraft.
According to an article from Aviation International News, there were a total of 29 nonfatal crashes involving U.S.-registered business jets last year versus the 31 accidents that happened in 2011.
