Surely there are no friendlier skies that those over the Sunshine State’s 1,200 miles of shimmering coastline. Florida is a pilot’s paradise.
Unfortunately, as one of the nation’s premiere tourism destinations, Florida has had more than its share of commercial airline accidents. The busy skies over Florida also contribute to a high number of Florida airplane crashes involving private pilots; more than 200 people have been killed in more than 500 Florida airplane accidents in the last five years, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
With more than 48,000 licensed pilots and 139 public airports, Florida joins California as the two states with the most private pilots, according to the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.
Hiring an experienced airplane accident attorney is critical to protecting your rights after a private or commercial plane crash. Commercial and private airline accidents in Florida are complex cases involving multiple victims, in–state and out–of–state pilots and companies and state and federal regulations.
