Aviation Loss of Licence Insurance: Comprehensive Coverage for Aviation Professionals
Aviation Loss of Licence insurance is a vital cover designed to protect pilots in the event of a loss or suspension of their professional licence due to medical reasons. In the event of death, the insurance policy provides compensation to the beneficiary designated by the insured. This specialised insurance provides financial support and peace of mind to pilots who rely on their licences for their livelihoods. It plays a crucial role in safeguarding pilots’ professional future.
Furthermore, total and irreversible loss of autonomy (TILA) is a critical aspect covered by this insurance. In cases where the insured individual becomes permanently disabled and unable to perform their professional duties, the policy offers financial support to help them adapt to a new lifestyle. This assistance can aid in covering medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and providing necessary support services.
FEIC specialises in providing comprehensive insurance solutions for pilots and has access to a network of insurers that provide this form of insurance. These insurers, in turn, have access to the services of expert medical personnel. When you obtain loss of licence insurance through FEIC, your insurers will evaluate the premium based on factors such as your age and other relevant factors. The maximum benefit payable is typically either two or three times your annual salary, up to a maximum of five times your annual salary. Offering you a substantial level of cover.
