On one hand, a plane has more visual substance than a line or a point. It terms of flying commercially by an airplane, if you are traveling 300 miles or less, it is faster (door to door) by driving your personal car. Between 300 and 500 mile.
So mile per mile, GA flying has about 5 times as many fatal accidents, and 9 times as many fatalities, as compared to travel by motor vehicle. The airlines have about the same fatality rate as driving, but a much lower fatal accident rate (by virtue of a large number of fatalities per accident).
