Insurance during lockdown

Post by 2greens1red » Sat Apr 25, 2020 12:50 pm

Under lockdown, whether one grounds their aircraft, or flies once-a-month for engine health, risk exposure is considerably reduced; negligible in some cases.

Has anyone had a sympathetic experience with their insurers in the current Covid 'crisis'?

Our insurer (LAA-approved) is not offering any reduced rates (nor refunds) while we are grounded, with the exception of 'professional operations'.

There is at least one aviation insurer who offers ground cover and pay-as-you-fly (i.e. for engine maintenance?) which would be preferable under the current restrictions.

Yes, my insurers were very helpful and reduced my policy to ground cover which includes allowance for several hours solo flight for the purpose of test flights etc. How much I will save remains to be seen but it has been on ground over a Month now! I should also add, I received a refund very quickly.
