Examples of “When things go Wrong”
Alberto-Culver Corporation v. AON Corporation
This tragic example of “when things go wrong” and with “the best intentions” highlighted the need for not only proper contract review but also proper wording with respects to Non-Owned policy language. This accident involved the corporation of Alberto-Culver and AON Corporation who had an interchange agreement which allowed for the use of each corporations Gulfstream IV (GIV) when needed for business travel. The complications in this case had been unprecedented in the industry as the accident aircraft involved was owned by Alberto-Culver, however being utilized by AON corporation.
To further complicate matters, the captain was the Chief Pilot for AON Corporation and the Co-Pilot was a Captain employed by Alberto-Culver. The case involves not only the Non-Owned Aircraft Liability clauses in both policies but also include the Non-Owned Physical Damage clauses as well in addition to the Primary Hull and Liability policy language in place for Alberto-Culver.

National Insurance Company v. Wyndham Worldwide Operations, Inc.
This case study is a great example of when having your own Non-Owned Liability coverage in place for your interests applies. In summary, Wyndham owned it’s own fleet of aircraft which the placed under a management agreement with Jet Aviation and provided for the operation and maintenance. Jet Aviation would also arrange for a substitute aircraft from another aircraft in their fleet should it be necessary and one of Wyndham’s aircraft weren’t available all of which was covered under Jet Aviation’s insurance placement through National Insurance Company.
In 2008 two Wyndham’s employees were killed in an aircraft accident involving a rented airplane that was neither owned by Wyndham nor operated by Jet Aviation under the management agreement. Wyndham maintained a separate Non-Owned Aviation Liability policy which responded to the accident.
