which is more safe, airplane or helicopter?

airplane because theycheck the plane a BUNCH, and always know the weather, and delay it if its unsafe, and there are people always tracking the plane so nothing goes wrong. Helicopter isnt as professional in a way. If you know what i mean. Many helicopters are privately owned, but not many airplanes are.

I would say airplane because they tend to have more redundancies built in so if something fails, there are other things to do to try to save the plane. Helicopter, if the blade is not working or the Jesus Nut, the nut that holds the main blade fails, then you really cannot control the helicopter.

I'd say the plane is safer because if something goes wrong such as an engine failure, the plane can always glide to the nearest airport. However if the blades of an helicopter fails, it becomes controllable.
