Your son has been watching to many shows and tell him that you will have to go in a plane everyday for 24 hours a day for 15,000 years then and if you are going a short distance tell him it will be alright.Tell your son the following facts:-Most plane crashes happen during take off and landing-Most plane crashes are caused by pilot error-Most plane crashes occur in the months of September and December.-The odds of getting killed in a plane crash are 1 in 11 million-The majority of plane crash survivors were sitting in the rear half of the plane-Car accidents kill more people each year then the total amount of people who have died in plane crashes.-Most people believe that traveling by car is safer than a plane (it's not)-Large planes are safer than smaller planes-You're more likely to die on the way to the airport than on the plane.
Because millions of aircraft fly every day, it is inevitable that there will be a few crashes from time to time.
The odds of a passenger being killed on any one flight are approximately 8 million to one.From PlaneCrashInfo.com: "If a passenger boarded a flight at random, once a day, everyday, it would statistically be over 21,000 years before he or she would be killed."There are many ways to analyze the statistics, which can be found at the links below.More information:The odds of a plane crash depend on a various amount of factors, such as:The type of planeThe size of the planeThe pilotThe time of yearThe weatherTypically, most plane crashes occur during takeoff and landing. Most plane crashes happen in the months of September and December. Car accidents kill more people each year than the total amount of people killed in plane crashes. Large planes tend to be safer than smaller ones. Most plane crash survivors were sitting in the rear half.The odds of being killed in a plane crash are about 1 in 11 million. There is 1 in 3 chance of living if your plane crashed.With all these facts considered, it is impossible to calculate the odds of a plane crash. Remember, it is a very rare occurance.If you or someone you know is worried about plane crashes, show them these facts above; and take the following precautions:Always take direct flights. Since most plane crashes occur during takeoff and landing, reducing the amount of times you have to get on and off a plane is a good idea. When it is not possible to do so, find something with the fewest stops possible.Many crashes are caused by bad weather. For example, flying during peak thunderstorm times (late evening in the summer) should be avoided. Flying at night is no safer than flying in the day.Try to get a seat in the rear half. If you cannot, sit in your assigned seat and after the flight attendants do the announcements, check to see if there are any free seats in the rear half. If there are are none, see if you can trade.
American Airlines Flight 77, which hit the Pentagon, was the third plane to crash that day. The crashes into both of the twin towers happened first, and then the one that crashed in Pennsylvania was the last one.

Unfortunately, the answer to your question is, yes.The worst year for airplane crash deaths was 1972, when 3,214 people died in plane crashes.
