But what Turd said is true. Like don't do the risky things that that has killed a lot of people, and know what the heck you're doing before you get in the plane, and don't fly a plane that you can barely keep up with, and there is no telling how far that will keep you out of the "statistic making" category.
Look at the auto accidents. So many of them are caused by drunks, distracted drivers, excessive speed for the conditions, running stoplights/signs, tailgating, all the stupid attitude-related things that apply in so many aircraft accidents. Fooling around at low level, illegal aerobatics, VFR into IMC, get-home-itis, going flying in adverse weather conditions just because today's my day off and if I don't fly today I won't be able to fly for another week. Lots of bad choices that simply don't need to happen.
