It’s No Surprise – Increased Limits are Available for Flying Club Insurance

Friday, May 9th, 2014

Many pilots believe aircraft ownership is only a dream, but then find that they can not only make that dream come true, but do so in a cost effective way: Through a flying club. When someone buys a share in a flying club, the annual aircraft costs are distributed amongst the group, resulting in less out of pocket expenses and more time in the air for the pilot.

It is not a surprise that one of the most important costs of flying clubs is insurance. Typically, due to the nature of risk that flying clubs present to the insurance industry, only a certain level of liability limits are available. Recently, a major organization has announced their ability to offer increased liability limits in flying club insurance. This, in fact, is no surprise to the aviation insurance industry, and something that the knowledgeable agents at AIR have been offering for years and are delighted to offer to flying clubs.

Most flying club insurance policies offer a $1,000,000 combined single limit property damage and bodily injury limit with a $100,000 per passenger sublimit. Sometimes, flying clubs are interested in higher limits but find that they are not always available through their current insurance policy. While higher limits sometimes cannot be offered through the flying club insurance policy, higher limits for an individual member of the flying club can be achieved through ‘stacked limits’.

Higher liability limits are available to individual members of the flying club by establishing individual a non-owned aircraft policy. This affordable policy will be “stacked” upon the main flying club insurance policy offering extra limits for that individual.
