Business Aviation | Insurance at a Premium
July 1, 2020
The cost of coverage is doubling in some cases – if available at all. Why? Substantial losses in commercial and private aviation along with natural catastrophes. As a result, some underwriters have left the market altogether while those who remain are upping rates to recover from years of flat returns and are choosing policyholders carefully. Older pilots and those flying their own turbine-powered aircraft are finding the market particularly tough.

Illicit Charter: Intentional or Not
Many expect post-pandemic interest in business aviation to increase as a result of reduced airline service and health concerns related to airline travel. While there are a number of options available to those new to business aviation – charter, jet cards, fractionals, etc. – there are other ways to go aloft, such as paying an aircraft owner to try out the travel option with his aircraft and crew or a private pilot for a quick day trip to a business meeting. The problem is those latter options violate federal regulations risking fines and license suspension and void insurance coverage should an accident result.

Capitalizing On Business Aviation In The Post-Pandemic Era
The mobility benefits of business aviation have never been clearer as they are today. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused airlines to ground large portions of their fleets, slash the number of departures, and concentrate traffic at hub airports thereby adding more legs to trips and even cancel service altogether to some cities.
Business aviation, in contrast, continues to offer passengers non-stop, point-to-point air transportation and also provides lower disease exposure risk. However, operating your company aircraft isn’t the only way to gain access to business aviation.
How can business aviation become more accessible and less expensive? Will FBOs be able to maintain health-safety standards and complete a timely boarding process?
Join us for an interactive webinar as our panelists discuss these topics and more.

Business Aviation, Post-Pandemic: Will This Crisis Reshape the Industry?
Business aviation manufacturers are making medical masks, face shields and respirators, fractional and charter jets are ferrying emergency room supplies and workers, loyal, able long-time workers have been stricken by the thousands from payrolls. Nothing is business as usual in business aviation. But the coronavirus will end, and when that much welcome day finally arrives, what of our community? Will it recover fully, partially or hardly? Going forward, how will its mission, its infrastructure, its fleet and its people be affected? What will be its losses and its gains? And what unexpected thing or things might alter its course?
Our goal is to provide some way-points as we navigate to a better place. Come share the start of that journey with us.
