A Cessna 182P that went down during weather in Tennessee in early September was the 48th fatality from crashes involving Cessnas in 2022, according to FAA data. That is on pace with last year’s 75 fatalities.
COO occasionally recaps fatalities as a learning tool for pilots, as the reports are very often informative and important. We have aggregated all of the available reports into one PDF on our website.
Two of the other crashes involved midair collisions. Previous to the September crash in Tennessee was the midair collision that killed a 152 pilot and a 340 pilot whose planes collided in California. In July, a collision between a 172 and a Piper Malibu Mirage killed four people in total.
