That's the thing it has absolutely nothing to do with the drug war unless they were flying in an operation, whether they were doing recon work or bombing someone.

Do the cartels ever shoot down aircraft?

Sad for sure, it made the local news here. But it had nothing to do with narco. I really don't know why anyone would fly in single engine plane. Or with one pilot.

Every nation on earth includes in its casualty counts for war accidental deaths. Accidental deaths are a separate category, but they are always included in the death toll of war.

You start by piloting single engine aircraft in aviation because they're small and they are the most common.. Have you ever seen a private or non-commercial craft before?

Their training exercises were probably drug war-related

Bombing?? Mexico doesn't go on bombing raids. This is not the Middle East
