Airplane Defects and Malfunctions

There are many parts of an airplane that can potentially malfunction or cause errors. False readings issued by instruments used to measure altitude can mislead a pilot. This is especially problematic when weather conditions limit visibility and force a pilot to rely on his or her instruments. Representative defects and malfunctions that might endanger passengers include:

  • Brake failure
  • Landing gear that deploys improperly
  • Improperly calibrated gauges and instruments
  • Engine failure
  • Communication device failure

Due to the devastating nature of aviation accidents, those who are affected are likely to suffer significant injury. Tragically, a crash may prove to be fatal, leaving a family to cope with the sudden and inexcusable loss of a loved one.
