    Statistically ,Propeller powered aircraft have been involved in more fatal accidents than
    Jet powered aircraft.
    The overall propeller design,slower air speed, is a design that invites disaster.
    recent studies indicate that these propeller powered commuter aircraft, have been involved
    in more accidents, than jet powered aircraft.
