Dear All,

Curious question but does anyone know where pilots come on the occupational risk list for car insurance?

If they can handle an airbus are pilots considered 'less risky' an investment behind the wheel?!?

Cheers for any input,

I wouldn't think so, as it's the other road users who are more likely to cause an accident, therefore being a 'good' driver probably doesn't help.

If you are a member of BALPA you can apparently get reduced insurance through a particular company, though when I tried them they were more expensive?

I have found in general, if I state I am a pilot my premium goes up?

I think that Norwich Union and their buddies probably read the motoring threads from aviators on Pprune!

I'm with esure, my premiums went down. The only occupations they had a downer on were actors (and other such drama queens) and sportsmen (of both sexes).

With all the diving and faking that goes on in football today, I wouldn't have said that the two catagories were that different.
