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.
We can help protect professional fixed and rotary wing pilots from an extensive range of low and high-risk flying activities.

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.
Access to our loss of licence insurance is available to individuals and groups with no association or union membership required.
New applications for loss of licence insurance accepted to age 59 and personal accident insurance to age 64.
We recognise one size does not fit all, instead of charging you for benefits you may not want, we give you control to select the level of cover you need.
