In areas of turbulence, injuries are not uncommon. The FAA states that there are about 45 injuries on average per year. Two-thirds of this number are stewardesses (mainly because they are the ones who are in a hurry to help passengers in the first place).

Typically, turbulence is completely harmless. This is essentially a "black streak" as a result of a gust of wind, stormy weather conditions, a jet stream, and other factors. Thus, any flight can 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. Airlines are currently testing new technology. With the help of ultraviolet lasers, aircraft send out a pulse and quickly identify these areas.
