Interestin Canard website

Hey guys - I ran across this website - it's kind of interesting. It's a list of NTSB accident reports for canard equipped aircraft as well as major factory produced models. I'm surprised that there are any Cessna 150's left!! I guess that's what happens when the fleet flies a million trillion training hours.

The problem with that comparison is that it fails to mention the fact that there are far, far less canards flying than there are conventional aircraft. Also, comparing something like the Beech Starship, which is primarily operated in a professional environment, to a C152, a training airplane, dosen't do much for helping with an understanding of the safety record. In the end the pilot makes all the difference no matter what wing is on the plane.
