Public Liability Insurance

Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

It's nearly ten years since I first had to do this. I found none of the big insurers were interested in covering premises that were actually on an airfield. I've used Haywards ever since. Some competition would be of interest........

Incidentally, they only cover the premises. Between the Club rooms and the aircraft is down to the airfield (which I'm sure doesn't cover ELI). Once in the aircraft only the aircraft insurance is active. Since the PIC only has limited accidental cover it's far from ideal. Bear in mind, self employed instructors must be covered as if they were fully employed. Even volunteers, perhaps doing a bit of decorating for free, are considered employees too.
