U.S. News & World Report reports "Not safe enough, say critics. The numbers bear them out, and passengers often don't know in advance what they're flying...standards for planes with 30 seats or fewer often are lower than for larger aircraft...the queasy feeling that this some people flying turboprops and older piston-engine propeller aircraft isn't entirely unwarranted. Over the past five years regional airlines like American Eagle... have averaged 5.1 accidents per million departures (compared to commuter airlines at 6.6 and big carriers at 2.9)"
