Having been a LOL insurer in the nineties, I confirm the views above about the underwriting shift and the change in stance by the CAA. There are still Group schemes for larger operators, but I have...

liability etc part 2

Interestingly, the aviation insurers of the Agusta 109 Vauxhall crash tried to claim against the CAA in the High Court, and they recently lost. That may be a straw in the wind here. In many ways it...
