about income protection and loss of licence insurance

This unique product combines income protection and traditional loss of licence insurance, specifically designed to meet the needs of commercial pilots.

Income protection provides a monthly benefit, irrespective of the status of your medical certificate, if you are temporarily or partially disabled from performing your own occupation as a pilot. Depending on your salary, you can insure 75% or 85% of your income with a choice of waiting periods from 30 to 180 days. Valuable additional benefits included at no extra cost.

Loss of licence provides a capital lump sum benefit, in addition to monthly benefits, if you suffer a permanent disability and unlikely to work as a pilot again.

An injury or illness can keep you out of the sky and place you in financial stress on the ground if not protected.

why choose us?

mental health cover

Professional pilots face occupational stressors every day such as irregular work schedules, work/life balance, fatigue, disruption of sleep and increased anxiety from having to take regular medical tests. However, many pilots are not properly insured, and you’ll find most plans have a full exclusion, only pay claims resulting from defined conditions or reduce the benefit payable. We know the importance of offering the widest coverage possible.
