Of all United's stations, one might consider SFO marginally safer since SFO is United's only maintenance base and a number of planes spend the night at SFO (or longer) for maintenance checks. With general aviation aircraft it seems to be the case that the first flight after maintenance (100 hr, annual, etc) is the most prone to have problems. I'm very leary of a plane that just got out of maintenance. I do full runups and a couple of circuits in the pattern before I take one out any further from the airport.
