Flying a Private Aircraft

Private Aviation is a type of Civil Aviation that does not include Commercial Aviation. Flying a Private Aircraft is done for leisure, travel and business and on one's own terms. In this case, we cannot provide cover if you are flying with fee paying passengers.

JS Travel Insurance can provide cover for Commerical Pilots on a Single Trip basis only.

Please select Flying - Commercial Pilot (Single Trip Only).

Please check the Terms and Conditions for any Restrictions or Exclusions.

Flying a Private Aircraft requires the pilot to pay for all expenses himself or herself, including costs for fuel, airport fees and maintenance costs. Many countries have less strict rules for Private Aviation than for Commercial Aviation. One example that illustrates this perfectly is the rule that Private Pilots are allowed to execute certain maintenance jobs themselves, but Commercial Airplanes may only be serviced by licensed Technicians.

It is important to make the distinction between Private and Commercial flights; a distinction that is based on the purpose of a flight and not on the individual Pilot or Airplane. A Commercial Pilot, for instance, that flies an Airplane to visit friends or family is considered to carry out a private flight in most countries. On the other hand, a Private Pilot could operate a large Aircraft and transport dozens of people, but not get paid for it. That flight would be considered private as well.

That being said; everyone who wants to operate an Aircraft, whether Privately or Commercially, must take Flying Courses and succeed for an exam. Everyone needs a Pilot License to legally fly any Aircraft.

Even though all Pilots are (or should be) properly trained, accidents do occasionally occur they are very rare though. Just in case something happens, it is strongly advised to purchase Travel Insurance if you want to fly a Private Aircraft or want someone to take you somewhere in their own Private Airplane.

Common Injuries

Injuries from flying may be rare but they do occur. This could mean anything from injury of the neck, head, spine, organs or even death. Small planes are also at a greater risk of being affected by the weather than larger, Commercial Airplanes. If there is a storm or a sudden onset of bad weather, this will have far greater an effect on a small plane and potentially put those inside it at a greater risk.
