New data by UK ATC provider NATS shows that business jets are more likely than others to be involved in certain types of safety incident. The information, released by NATS at the European Business Aviation Association regional forum in the UK last month, shows that while business jets are involved in 5 percent of all reported safety incidents in UK airspace, they account for 35 percent of incidents in which an aircraft failed to follow a cleared SID and 14 percent of altitude busts.
