Flying a Private Aircraft

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.

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.

Pre Existing Medical Conditions

If you have pre existing medical conditions and you plan to be flying a Small Aircraft, Private Plane or Helicopter whilst travelling abroad, we are able to provide you with a policy.
