Is flying the safest mode of transport?

Statistically, the rank of transport mode is as follows (per passenger hour):
1 (safest): Rail - by far!
3 (least safe): Air
Per passenger kilometer (which is sometimes used), the ranking is as follows:
1 (safest): Rail
3 (least safe) Road - by far!
I tend to prefer to measure my life by hours, not kilometers.
