However, the British magazine "Flight International" publishes both military and civilian accident/incident report every six months. While that report lists all the accidents in the precious six months, it also includes general statistics such as "Number of fatalities per 100,000,000 miles flown," but you then need to do some homework to compare that to some local auto accident statistics of your area.
