Key Commercial Aviation Insurance Coverages to Consider

Cover considerations for private owners, corporate aircraft operators, charter/air taxi aircraft operators and helicopter operators include:

Hull All Risks
The operator is protected against risk of physical loss or damage to their aircraft while on the ground and while it is in flight.

Aircraft Liability
Bodily injury or property damage which is caused by an occurrence and arises out of the operation or use of the operators aircraft.

Hull War Risks
This affords cover against acts of war and malicious damage that are typically excluded in an ‘all risks’ programme.
