In zones of turbulence injuries are not rare. The Federal Aviation Administration claims that, on average, about 45 injuries occur per year. Two thirds of this number falls on flight attendants (mainly because they are the ones who are the first to rush to help passengers).

As a rule, turbulence is absolutely harmless. This is essentially a “black line” as a result of a gust of wind, thunderstorm weather conditions, a jet stream, and other factors. Thus, any flight may face this factor.

Pilots usually know when to begin the zone. In almost all cases, the pilots in advance you will be asked to fasten your seat belts. They rely on weather reports, Manager, reports from other boards in this area.

The most dangerous is the "turbulence in the clear sky." Since this type of turbulence occurs outside the areas of cloud, its hard to recognize GIZ-meteorological instruments.

Scientists say that by mid-century, the number 21 turbulence zones will double, due to global warming.

To work around areas of high turbulence, pilots are carefully studying the weather and produce the best route before each departure.

We can say for sure that in the future we will learn to bypass such zones. Currently, airlines are experiencing new technology. With the help of ultraviolet lasers, airplanes send a pulse and quickly determine these zones.
