ABSTRACT
Public awareness of airplane safety is very high due to the spectacular nature of airplane accidents. Partly as a result, civil airplane operations are tightly regulated at all levels from design to operation and maintenance. Scheduled airline operations have thus been able achieve a very high level of safety. In this article we quantify the safety of flight operations and indicate the design concepts like fail safety and safe life used in achieving a high level of safety. As an illustration, we consider the safety of a flight of a twin engine airplane in the event of one engine failure.
