  1. I hear about so many of these single engine Cessna planes crashing. I don’t know how much more double engines planes cost to buy but if you can’t afford a double engine planes then don’t buy one and fly commercial. These single planes are simply sekonos nefashos.

  2. In repsone to @philosopher saying that it’s “sekonos nefashos” to fly a single-engine Cessan plane and it’s only safe to fly a double engine.
    First, and most importantly, there are clear halakhos about what situation is called a “sakana” and, while you should ask your Rav and not paskin of random internet commentators, flying any of these planes is not called dangerous by any measure of halacha.
    Second, a simple cursory google search shows that 1) single-engine planes are LESS dangerous than twin-engine planes and 2) Private planes are LESS dangerous than driving a car.

    So, if you are really concerned about saving lives, stop giving bad advice (one of the aveiros we repent for in nusach of viduy on yom kippur), and you will at least start saving your own life.
