AIR FAQ – Helicopter Non-Owned Coverage

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Q: My friend told me that I need insurance for renting an aircraft. Aren’t I covered under my flight school’s policy?

A: Although flight schools carry protection for their aircraft, this protection does not necessarily extend to the renter pilot. Often the flight school agreement holds the renter responsible for any and all damage if a loss were to occur. In addition, an insurance carrier may seek to recover their losses by subrogating against the renter responsible for an accident.

Q: I rent a helicopter from a flight school. I know there is fixed wing non-owned insurance, but can I get covered for rotorcraft rental?

A: For years, helicopter renters have been greatly exposed due to the lack of non-owned rotorcraft coverage in the aviation insurance market. Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) has worked diligently to fill this need and now offers helicopter renters insurance! All of the agents at AIR are aircraft renters or owners themselves, so they understand that while most pilots never plan on having an accident, they can occur. This coverage can certainly bring “peace of mind” in the unlikely event that was to happen.

Q: I’m on a budget, is buying a renter policy really worth it?

A: Often pilots are unaware that their defense costs are also covered in a renter policy. In the event that a suit were to be brought against the renter pilot after an accident by an injured party (bodily injury or property damage or damage to a helicopter), a legal defense is provided by the insurance company and they will try and settle the suit within the limits of coverage purchased. Without coverage, just an initial consultation with an attorney for a couple of hours today would cost in excess of $500 alone. A non-owned rotorcraft insurance policy can start at as low as $304 annually for liability only! Discounts are also available if you are claims free or if you have completed a FAAST Wings phase within the last 12 months.

Q: I’m juggling a full time job along with helicopter flight training several times a week. How much paperwork is involved in securing non-owned helicopter coverage?

The HAI Heli-Expo 2014 is almost here!

Monday, February 24th, 2014

In just a few days, rotor pilots and aviation enthusiasts alike will gather in Anaheim, California for the HAI (Helicopter Association International) Heli-Expo 2014. From February 25th-27th, the HAI Heli Expo includes the annual membership meeting, a welcome reception, job fair, silent auction, golf tournaments, many aviation exhibits and more!

As attendees of the Heli-Expo will see, helicopters are some of the hardest working aircraft out there, taking part in everything from recreational flight to charters, emergency medical services (EMS), traffic and law enforcement, firefighting and cargo hauling. Because of this, you need an insurance policy designed to cover your unique needs as a helicopter owner / pilot.

Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) agents are experienced at placing coverage for certified helicopters such as Robinson, Eurocopter and Sikorsky helicopters to experimental helicopters like Rotorway and the Mosquito helicopter. We are licensed in all 50 states and provide a wide range of aircraft insurance options for both fixed wing and rotor wing aircraft. Plus, AIR represents all of the major aviation underwriting companies to give you comprehensive options. Regional Representative Joe Ruck, from California, will be happy to speak with you about your helicopter insurance at the Heli-Expo.
