FAA research and upgrades to aircraft over the years have significantly increased the likelihood of passengers surviving an aviation accident. Many aviation accidents are survivable and improvements to cabin safety and the prevention and control of in-flight fires have contributed to passenger survivability.
FAA cabin research is conducted at the William J. Hughes Technical Center in Atlantic City, NJ and the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City.
