**A word of explanation on aircraft renter's insurance

We have reached a special agreement with our insurance broker to receive coverage for pilots not residing in the United States, with the approval of AIG Aviation Insurance.

A few conditions apply:

  • A pre-clearance process (3-6 weeks) must be completed prior to arrival
  • Insurance premium is not refundable due to additional services provided
  • The premium must be paid on arrival at our airport
  • You are not allowed to fly until you receive your policy papers
  • You must terminate your policy when you depart

Once you paid your premium, we will take care of sending your original insurance request form and a check (insurance broker only accepts checks) by mail, as soon as possible. This usually takes 2-3 business days.

During these 2-3 days, we will help you become familiar with our airport/area through ground briefings with our instructors. You will also be encouraged to catch some flights with our local pilots to familiarise yourself to the airport.



Aircraft renter's insurance is a must have for pilots on hour building and for any pilots renting or borrowing aircraft.

Most FBO's and flight schools who advertise "insurance included" or "deductible only" coverages are not covered for the renters but only for themselves!! They never show their insurance policy to pilots, until something happens.

You could be made liable for the deductible but that's not all: the insurance company can exercise right of subrogation and claim damages against you if an accident happens because of an error of your part. This has happened many times in the past.

To limit the student pilot's financial risk when flying and before all, for their peace of mind, we have made it a requirement to hold renter's insurance before stepping on one of our aircraft.

We also advise student pilots to buy life insurance coverage in their own country, with general aviation coverage included.

Insurance companies do not cover gross negligence or intentional acts.
