In 2010, nearly 1,400 general aviation accidents were investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). 2011 is on pace to have more accidents than the previous year, and 25 fatal accidents were investigated in June alone. In an effort to stem the increase, NTSB Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman is attending the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture convention in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

AirVenture is expected to be attended by more than half a million pilots and aviation enthusiasts during its week-long duration.

"AirVenture is a perfect opportunity to take our safety message to the largest gathering of sport aviation enthusiasts in the United States and to meet the thousands of GA [general aviation] pilots and industry representatives in attendance," Hersman said. "We are here to listen and to learn as well as share lessons learned from recent NTSB accident investigations and studies with an amazing group of aviators."

According to the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, there were 1,384 general aviation accidents in 2010. Of these accidents, 267 were fatal, resulting in 453 deaths. 2009 saw 1,474 accidents, 272 of which were fatal and resulted in 474 deaths.
