I'm suddenly reminded of Flyboys, with James Franco. Good movie.

It was an incredibly dangerous job. More than even fighting in the trenches. I think the average survival time for a new British flying corps aviator was under three weeks during the worst part of the war.

Yeah, it was extremely dangerous job, literally most WWI pilots died during their training than in actuall dogfights
