Turbulence cases appear to be soaring globally, so how can you stay safe?

Picture flying smoothly through the skies until turbulence hits and people or items are sent flying instead. That was the case for a recent Singapore Airlines flight Tuesday that left one dead and dozens injured. And everything was fine until I arrived back in the airport and then I started feeling really sick. Turbulence has various causes. Storms and mountains can create bumpy conditions. And pilots often work to steer clear of the impacts. What isn't easy to avoid is clear air turbulence, which can happen out of the blue and is often seen as the most dangerous. It's impossible to avoid unless somebody has hit it already and warned you because you can't see it. It's not yet confirmed what exactly caused turbulence for the Singapore Airlines flight, but some passengers say it made the plane drop dramatically. And that's why air safety experts say it's important to take safety precautions. Even if they seem simple, the best way in turbulence is to have your seat belt done up tight. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada has seen 56 incidents with turbulence related injuries since 2015, nine of which involve serious cases. On one flight, the agency says many passengers were not wearing their seatbelts. Some airline analysts say after Tuesday's incidents and climate change impacts, adjustments should be made. But airlines saying we recommend you keep yourself seat belt fastened while seated. I should be saying it is mandatory to keep your seat belt safe, done up on this airline. Singapore Airlines CEO offered his condolences to the family of the man who died on Tuesday's flight as twenty others remain in intensive care Wednesday. Passengers on that flight say it has shaken their comfort on planes. But safety experts say not to worry about flying as long as you keep that seat belt fastened. Sean Preville. Global News.
