Dear Reader!

Here you will find news about the most recent aircraft accidents around the world.

My objective is not sharing bad news, instead I want to highlight once more the importance of  doing your job best by putting your heart, mind and soul.

Every job is good if you do your best and work hard.

Nobody can predict the future. You just have to give your all to the work you’re in and do your best to take your responsibilities, communicate and give it every last drop of passion you have. 

People’ lives are in your hands if you work in aviation-aerospace industry. The passengers who died or injured in the news could be your family, yourself or your friends.

Therefore  It is not enough to do your best; you must know what to do, and then do your best.
