Helicopters are highly maneuverable aircraft that can take off and land just about anywhere. These versatile flying machines serve the transportation needs of everything from law enforcement agencies and medical facilities to search and rescue operations, media outlets, tour operators and more.
The statistics for helicopters show that the rate of fatalities has steadily risen over the past three years. Almost 39% of general aviation accidents are caused by violations and over 22% are caused by the pilot using the wrong technique.
These sobering statistics prove that ensuring you have full pilot insurance should be your utmost priority.
As with any aircraft, helicopters do present some liability risks. Owners that do not carry enough liability insurance could experience financial hardship if an incident or accident leads to injuries or property damage. A successful lawsuit against the owner could lead to a loss of personal or business assets.
Due to the potential for a significant loss, many insurers do not offer helicopter insurance coverage, especially to owners with an extensive claims history. If you need insurance for your helicopters, XINSURANCE can provide an all-in-one solution that will give you peace of mind.
We can provide access to the following coverages:
Insurance for private helicopter owners and businesses consists of liability protection against injuries and property damage sustained by third parties. In addition to paying medical bills and the cost of repairing and replacing damaged property, this insurance will cover settlements and judgments from lawsuits up to the limits of your policy, as well as your legal expenses.
Passenger liability is another essential helicopter pilot insurance coverage. Available on a per-seat basis, this protects any passengers riding in the aircraft if they are injured or killed in an accident. In the latter situation, the insurance provides compensation to the victim’s family members or survivors.
With liability coverage featuring limits of up to $10 million, and $20 million through our reinsurance partners, we can provide the level of protection you need. No risk is too big or too small for XINSURANCE.
In addition to liability protection, helicopter owners can purchase hull insurance. Similar to physical damage coverage that’s available for automobiles, hull insurance applies to damage sustained by the aircraft while it is in the air or on the ground. Examples of covered losses include theft, vandalism, and weather and accident damage.
Please note that we do not offer workers’ compensation coverage for employees.
