A Brief History of Safety in Aviation

One of the less sexy aspects of aviation is safety. When the Wright Brothers first took to the skies with their Wright flyer, riding a plane was more of a thrill-seekers game than a business-person’s. Since then the aviation industry has seen a number of developments in safety and stability: from non-pressurized, astral-navigated journeys to jet engines and voice transmission air traffic control systems. This video by Airbus, does a great job of giving a (brief) history of the safety in aviation.

Have you heard of this technological breakthrough that will change aviation?
