||Data regarding general aviation and air taxi crashes in the United States during 1992-94 were analysed and crash risk was calculated for each state and region. During the 3-year period, the calculated United States crash rate was 8.9 crashes per 100,000 flight hours. Alaska and the Northwest Mountain region had the highest crash and fatal crash rates. This is the first study to report on geographical differences in rates determined as crashes per 100,000 pilot hours. It shows that crash rates and fatal crashes are highest in mountainous regions.
