Military aircraft accidents are governed by a different set of rules than commercial and general aviation accidents. While the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has jurisdiction over investigations into civil air crashes a military Aircraft Mishap Board typically has jurisdiction over investigations into military airplane accidents and military helicopter accidents. Also, certain causes of action otherwise available to plaintiffs arising from non-military crashes are barred under the Feres doctrine in military crash cases . In most instances, the only recourse military personnel or their families have is to pursue an action against a private company or civilian who caused or contributed to the accident, if any exist.
