Protecting your business and personal operations
If you, or your organization, uses an aircraft that you do not own, you’ll need non-owned aircraft liability protection, even if you’re only a passenger. Non-owned aircraft liability protects you and/or your company, not the aircraft owner. For those who qualify, coverage is generally available for non-commercial uses:
- Corporate Non-Owned Aircraft Liability Insurance (for corporations) provides coverage to companies or individuals that use aircraft that they do not own and that are operated by third parties such as chartered aircraft or permissive use. These exposures are primarily contingent liabilities where the user does not employ the crew and is not directly involved with the operation and maintenance of the aircraft.
- Personal Non-Owned Aircraft Liability Insurance (for individual licensed renter pilots) will protect you in the event you have an aircraft accident or cause damage to a non-owned aircraft you are using.
Coverage can also be provided for flight instructors, examiners, and student pilots. It can be tailored to include single-engine, multi-engine, light sport, experimental aircraft, and even piston-powered rotorcraft.
Non-owned claims do occur, averaging about $30,000, and tend to be very complex, especially when interchange or fractional ownership becomes part of the equation.
