*** PREVIOUS RESULTS ***
Last week, AVweb asked readers if they were concerned
about having a mid-air collision.
By and large, our readers feel that mid-air
collisions are just one of many dangers they must guard

this danger in with all the other potential hazards of
flying a plane.
28% of respondents, however, were willing to rank a
mid-air collision as one of their "top five" concerns.
And another 7% went as far as saying it's their greatest
Only 1% of readers confessed that mid-air collisions

*** THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***

contributing factors are well out of your control.
How much concern do you grant hypoxia when you fly?
