FAQ

Who is allowed to fly your aircraft?

  • every pilot mentioned in your policy
  • engineers working at an FAA Approved Repair Station, during inspections or repairs to the insured aircraft
  • every CFI, accompanied by a pilot named in the policy
  • every pilot who meets the qualifications if the policy includes an open pilot clause 

What do "Combined Single Limit of Liability" or "smooth limit" mean?

Most aviation liability insurance policies include sub-limits. A Combined Single Limit (CSL), also called a "smooth limit", only indicates the total limit of cover, and no sub-limits are applicable.

What insured amounts do I need for liability?

These are different for everyone. The correct insured limits are determined on the basis of your assets, other liability insurance policies that you have taken out, your passengers, the use of the aircraft and legislation. NB: the insured amounts are not the only important factor. If the insurer handles an incident quickly and correctly, this also has added value.

How can you identify the differences between aviation insurance policies?

The minimum amounts of cover are defined by law. Since the government does not strictly regulate aviation insurance, there are fundamental differences between the insurance cover provided under different policies. You should therefore always read the terms and conditions of the insurance policy carefully. Check what is insured and what is not. Every aircraft owner has different expectations and needs: sometimes the cheapest policy simply offers cover that is not as good.
