Turbine Training Center Blog for Cessna 208 Caravan & Beechcraft King Air pilots
There are several phrases that General Aviation Pilots only smile at when they hear:
- “Take the Bus, and leave the driving to us.
- “Let Hertz put you in the driver’s seat.”
- “See the U.S.A. in your Chevrolet.”
While most GA Pilots share the joys of independence that their aircraft offers, not all of them have a solid understanding of how they can protect themselves, and their families, should the unthinkable happen and they have a crash. While “Any landing you can walk away from is a good one,” might be true, they aren’t all financially acceptable. That’s why if you are a pilot, or intend to become a pilot, you need to be acutely aware of AVIATION INSURANCE AND KING AIR 300 TRAINING.
“It is somewhat of a reverse ‘availability heuristic’ situation,” Dale Wolcott, President of TURBINE TRAINING in Manhattan, Kansas, shared, “While most people are much more nervous when they board an airplane than when they get in a car, despite the fact that there are 100-plus car fatalities daily in America, because while air travel is one of the safest modes of transportation available, every plane crash makes both national and even international news, and there is generally nothing more than local coverage of car crashes, it seems to our brains that plane crashes are more likely. Now, since pilots know the reality of this situation and, as a result, tend to feel that they, their planes and passengers are completely safe, their attention to truly appropriate Aviation Insurance might be a little wanting.”
Some of the things they should be aware of, and attentive to, are such coverages as:
- Public Liability Coverage
- Passenger Liability Coverage
- Ground Risk – Hull Insurance in Motion
- Ground Risk – Hull Insurance Not in Motion
- In-flight Insurance
