Loss of Licence Insurance
Your Health Is Our Priority
Pilots and aircrew undertake years of hard work and incur considerable expense to obtain an aviation licence. However, a commercial pilot’s career and income are at risk if they are prevented from carrying out their duties in the event of a serious injury or deterioration in health.
Loss of licence insurance provides financial help for all commercial pilots including flight instructors to help them prepare for an alternative career should their flying career be brought to an abrupt end as well as providing income protection during temporary incapacity. Our benefit plan is available to pilots on an individual basis if coverage is not provided by your employer. Alternatively, the cover can also be purchased as an additional ‘top up’ to an existing group policy’s coverage.
Loss of licence insurance is designed specifically for pilots and thus overcomes many of the limitations encountered with more traditional group insurance products, such as health, personal accident and critical illness insurance, which may offer only restricted cover and reduced benefits
