Protect yourself with helicopter insurance

What aviation insurance do I need for a piston rotorwing helicopter?

Being fully insured is essential in order to protect both yourself and your helicopter should an accident occur. You’ll need the following types of aviation insurance in order to be fully covered.

In-flight insurance

If any damage occurs to your piston rotorwing helicopter while it’s in-flight or while it’s taking off or landing, that would be covered by an in-flight insurance policy.

Ground risk hull insurance

You’ll also need helicopter insurance to cover your piston rotorwing while it’s on the ground. Ground risk hull insurance is the policy for any damage that occurs when it isn’t in the air.

Public liability insurance

In the event of an accident, your helicopter isn’t the only thing that could get damaged. Public liability insurance is the policy that will cover damage your piston rotorwing could cause to third-party property or people.

Passenger liability insurance

You’ll also want any passengers you take up in your helicopter. A passenger liability insurance policy will cover any and all of your passengers.

CSL insurance

CSL insurance is a combination policy that includes both passenger liability and public liability insurance. This can be a convenient way to combine two policies into one single limit if you don’t need separate limits for each.

How much piston rotorwing helicopter insurance do you need?

While it’s important to be insured, it’s also essential to avoid being underinsured. It may be tempting to have a smaller policy to lower costs, but that could end up being more expensive in the long run. If an accident occurred, you’d be liable to pay for any damages that the insurance company wouldn’t cover, which could even ground you from flying. But how much helicopter insurance do you need?

How is aviation insurance calculated?

Aviation insurance is calculated either by the number of passengers an aircraft can carry or by how much that aircraft costs. Passenger liability insurance, for example, relies on the number of passengers in its calculation. Other policies like ground risk hull insurance and in-flight insurance rely on the overall cost of the helicopter.

Who needs piston rotorwing insurance?

Anyone who owns a piston rotorwing helicopter will need to insure it in full. Uninsured or underinsured helicopters will be limited in where and how they can fly. FBOs typically only allow those who are fully insured to utilize their services. Additionally, if you’re flying your helicopter internationally, most countries won’t allow underinsured or uninsured aircraft in their airspace.
