Fractional Ownership Liability  

Owning an aircraft can be an expensive proposition as the high acquisition cost is just the beginning. The operational costs and resource allocation for setting up your own flight department can be a daunting task. Buying a fractional share of an aircraft whereby you leave the management and operation to professional aviators can be a good alternative. Although the Fractional Aircraft Program provides Hull and Liability insurance for all owners, please keep in mind that this limit is split amongst all owners in the Program. This may or may not be enough to cover your interest should the unthinkable ever occur.  

Our policy provides you with peace of mind knowing that your interests will be protected should the primary program fall short.

Non-Owned Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Use

This could be as simple as filming an advertisement, surveying a building site/land to the more complex operations such as using a UAV to protect your valuable crops through agricultural applications. Most UAV operators carry liability coverage, however, that coverage is typically limited to $1,000,000 or less. This limit would be extended to protect your interests if you were named as an Additional Insured under their policy and would be shared between all parties involved. Having your own protection, which you control, would ensure your interests are protected. Typical coverage would include but is not limited to the following:  

  • Liability limits up to $10,000,000 or higher if needed
  • Worldwide Coverage Territory
  • Medical Payments
  • Personal Injury Liability
  • Premises Liability

Is there coverage/protection under the owner’s/operator’s policy for charter customers or other users and is it appropriate to cover your interests?

It truly depends on the owner’s/operator’s policy and several factors that should be considered for which your insurance broker/professional can be consulted. Coverage may extend to you and your organization as most policies extend coverage for bodily injury and property damage (Liability Coverage) to permissive users, however; this does not apply with respects to physical damage to the aircraft. Below are some factors to consider when determining if coverage is appropriate:

  • Does the policy have adequate limits? – keep in mind that the policy limits will be shared amongst all users/passengers including the operator/owner.
  • Is the owner/operator abiding by the insurance contract language, i.e. use clause, pilot warranty etc.?
  • Are you named as an additional insured, provided a waiver of subrogation (WOS) and does it have Primary and non-contributory wording?
  • If you are in the “aviation” business i.e., you are responsible for arranging the flight, providing professional piloting service etc., coverage may not extend to your interest if not specifically mentioned or endorsed to do so

 

Can I purchase coverage for myself and or my organization to protect my interests if I use aircraft that I do not own or if I own a fractional share of an aircraft?

Absolutely, with our expertise and that of your Professional insurance agent/broker. We provide solutions for: As outlined in the above Insurance sectors, we can tailor a policy specifically for you and your organization.

Policies can be broad in scope and can include a wide array of aircraft provided they are only operated by professional pilots furnished by the aircraft owner such as a chartered aircraft. The policy would primarily provide contingent liabilities since the charter customer is not directly involved with the operation of the aircraft. If the pilot is an employee of your organization, coverage may still be available, but would be rated in accordance with the pilot’s experience and may be limited to certain aircraft types or models.
