The aim of this study is to know the influence of human factor and runway quality on the aircraft accidents of commercial flights in Indonesia. This study uses survey method with the sample as many as 100 pilots taken in a sampling quota way. Data analysis uses descriptive statistics and correlation inferential statistics and regression. The result of this study indicates a negative and significant influence of human factor on the aircraft accidents, a negative and significant influence of runway quality on the aircraft accidents, and a negative and significant influence of human factor and runway quality simultaneously on the aircraft accidents. The study gives benefit of the importance to keep doing and maintaining continuous improvements on the qualities of human factor and runway at the most optimum level in order to reduce the number of aircraft accidents in Indonesia.
