The rate of fatal injuries for aircraft pilots and flight engineers is 57.1
Why would this class be so high if the airline safety record is near perfect? A small population size of pilots, maybe?

though the rates [of illness] for these jobs are higher for government versus private workers
I am so surprised. Whoda thunk it?

It doesn't say 'professional pilots' just 'pilots' so that would include general aviation and all those pilots who fly home-built or experimental aircraft.
I thought that too, but "flight engineers" would surely be professional, wouldn't it?

Now I'm curious to see "passenger-mile" numbers compared to "per journey" numbers.
