I agree. This is how commercial aviation has become as safe as it is. When accidents happen, we seek not to blame individuals, but to understand root causes, and prevent or reduce the chance of the...

That's a computer-generated artist's concept image.



With any EV or E-anything.... believe it when you can buy one. The hype-to-reality ratio in this area is about 50:1.
