Rates that I calculated did, though, come out pretty close to rates calculated by others so I thought mine were and are as accurate as you could hope for.

A lot has happened in and to private aviation in the time since I did those safety studies.

There were 25 such accidents in the 48 contiguous states.

If the methodology I used years ago is applied to that number, the 172 safety record appears to have improved, maybe substantially.

Over ten percent of the 172 accidents involved drugs or alcohol. The pilot shot two people, killing one, and then exchanged gunfire with another person as he was taxiing out in a stolen airplane.

He crashed into a wooded area 20 minutes after takeoff.

I think it is safe to say that any accident rate numbers developed today would be substantially more suspect than those of 15 or 20 years ago.The Diamond fleet is, however, much smaller so the inevitable yearly changes in the number of accidents would cause big changes in accident rates.I was most curious about whether or not the changing patterns in private aviation resulted in any change in the nature of 172 accidents.If there was a particular phase of flight where the 172 was vulnerable, it was the go-around.Those big flaps, 40-degrees on older models and 30 later, make a go-around a demanding maneuver, especially if it is started late.
