accident rate

The number of accidents in a given period of time against benchmarked hours flown/takeoffs completed/passenger-miles or kilometers/stage flights. In military aviation, the term refers to the number of accidents per 100,000 flying hours. Some air forces use 10,000 h as the benchmark. In commercial aviation, this refers to the number of accidents per 100 million passenger-miles or kilometers or per 100,000 stage flights. In general aviation, it is the number of accidents per 100,000 takeoffs. The reckoning period is generally a financial year or a calendar year and, in some cases, it is a five-year moving average. Accident rates are further subclassified as human error by the aircrew, ground crew error, and material failure, in addition to write-offs (damaged beyond economical repairs) and fatal accidents.

To achieve these objectives, a fixed parameters negative binomial model with constant parameters and a random parameters negative binomial model were developed, and the modeling results were compared to explore which approach maybe appropriate (this statement means that the traditional negative binomial model (fixed parameters) is suitable for some cases and random parameters binomial model is suitable for others; so all considerable models need to be taken into account in the accident frequency analysis).
