Aviation Professional Services Liability Insurance

Aviation Professional Services Liability Insurance

Insurance to Protect Aerospace Related Businesses

Aviation and aerospace professionals such as auditors, engineers, safety experts, consultants, maintenance providers, FBOs and aircraft sales dealers face exposure to loss resulting from allegations of professional misconduct. Damages may be awarded for financial loss to a third party even in the absence of an accident causing bodily injury or property damage. The Aviation Professional Services (APS) Liability insurance policy available through Global Aerospace, Inc. provides these professionals with protection from this exposure.

Policy Features
We live in a fast-paced business world where mistakes can and do happen. Most aviation professionals already have insurance protecting them from claims for bodily injury or property damage arising from “occurrences” resulting from their aviation activities.

The APS policy does not replace the traditional “occurrence” policy, but compliments it by responding when a claim is made that the policyholder committed a “wrongful act”, as defined in the policy, that resulted in damages other than bodily injury or property damage. An inadequate pre-purchase inspection or improper advice concerning an engine overhaul may not result in an accident that would trigger an “occurrence” insurance policy, but are wrongful acts to which the APS policy would likely respond. With this coverage gap filled, the aviation professional enjoys comprehensive protection.
