I am not talking the typical breakdown such as Pilot/Mechanical/Other, but rather, more specific things such as, engine failure, Stall/Spin on approach, controlled flight into terrain... etc

    $\begingroup$ The closest thing I can think of is the Nall report - I'm not sure if that's the level of granularity you're looking for though... $\endgroup$ – voretaq7 Oct 20 '14 at 4:50
  • $\begingroup$ @raptortech97 I think you are looking for avherald.com but that doesn't include all reports for various reasons $\endgroup$ – ratchet freak Oct 20 '14 at 9:44
  • $\begingroup$ @voretaq7 - This is great information about the conditions and type of flight, but I still don't see the cause on there anywhere. $\endgroup$ – David Oct 20 '14 at 13:36
  • $\begingroup$ Out of interest what do you want the information for? $\endgroup$ – GdD Oct 20 '14 at 15:57

    $\begingroup$ @David - I suspect the hard part of designing an LSA which compensates for pilot mistakes won't be when the pilot tries to do the right thing and fails, it will be compensating for when the pilot tries to do the wrong thing, and succeeds. $\endgroup$ – Steve V. Oct 20 '14 at 23:09

There's a book called "The Killing Zone - How and Why Pilots Die" by Paul A. Craig which has a great deal of statistical work in it around aircraft accidents which may be useful to you. It's an alarming title which might make you think it's some sort of sky is falling mentality, but it's actually very sensible, statistics-based information about aviation accidents.
