Aviation liability exposure
Aviation liability exposure presents one of the greatest risks to any aviation-related business including non-owned aviation companies such as fly-in fishing lodges. Losses have commonly been known to be in the millions of dollars and beyond, and third party aviation liability losses are excluded from standard liability policies.
Aviation liability insurance coverage is mandatory
Coverage is mandatory but this varies. Reliance Insurance can put together a plan designed to address any exposure your aviation business might have, regardless of size. We’ll advise you on the two main areas of necessary coverage: public liability, and passenger liability, and any others that may not be as obvious.
Areas of aviation coverage
- Public liability – covers the owners of aircraft for damages their aircraft may cause to third-party property such as buildings, equipment, airport facilities, crops or property on the ground, and damage to other aircraft damaged by collision.
- Passenger liability – provides protection for passengers injured or killed while riding in the aircraft. There are minimum requirements set out by Transport Canada for both private operators and commercial operators, with a specific limit for each passenger seat.
- Combined single limit – coverage combines public liability and passenger liability into a single limit per accident. This allows for greater flexibility in settling passenger claims without setting a limit per passenger seat.
- Premises liability – this provides protection for anyone operating at an airport, airfield or landing strip.
- Products liability – provides coverage for any manufacturers, fuelers or refuellers, maintenance, repair or overhaul operators from product liability losses suffered by third-parties as a result of their work.
Specialty aviation insurance is critical. Work with Reliance Insurance to ensure you have comprehensive coverage.
