I just came across a short entry in Aviation Week's "The Weekly of Business Aviation" which states that pilot error can account for up to 80% of all fatal accidents involving aircraft. My question is, what constitutes the other 20%? Does anyone know the break down percentage wise? For example; Weather accounts for X%, structural failure for y%, system failure z%. Any info would be appreciated.
