Connecting aviation professionals and enthusiasts to a wealth of information, insights, and learning resources focused on the aviation and aerospace industries.
As an aircraft owner, you may be asked to add one or more individuals or an entity to your aviation liability insurance policy as an “additional insured.” This is a common practice in aviation and other types of insurance, but it is important that you understand the ramifications before agreeing to it.
The use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)—by both professional operators and hobbyists—continues to grow rapidly. With that growth comes an increase in aviation and non-aviation hazards. The potential for collisions…
Technology drives the aerospace industry to new efficiencies and is reshaping future air mobility. Advances in technology can bring new risks, and aircraft builders as well as the associated supply chain rely on aviation product liability insurance to support their efforts by protecting them when something goes amiss.
Having the right aviation insurance is important for light aircraft owners. Just as important, however, is having an in-depth understanding of what your policy provides and what it does not.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and air travel declined sharply, airport operations changed abruptly. Rather than the normal focus on getting aircraft in safely, serviced and off on the next leg of their journey, airport service companies faced different challenges related to how to manage the large number of parked planes.
As light aircraft owners are aware, premiums have been on the rise in recent years, with most seeing anything from modest to significant increases. This article explains what is driving these increases and why they have been necessary to ensure that owners are properly protected in the event of damage to their aircraft.
Whether for business or pleasure, pilots love flying. When threatening storm clouds appear on the horizon, special precautions become necessary. Because aircraft are designed to utilize airflow to produce the lift that keeps them airborne, they are at the mercy of strong winds.
When veteran astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley set out for the International Space Station (ISS) from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center aboard SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule in late May, it was more than just a successful launch and flawless docking. The first mission to take astronauts to space from American soil in nearly a decade was also the first by a private space company to take humans to the ISS.
Two stakeholders whose collaboration plays a major role in aviation safety are operators and fixed base operators (FBOs). Effective communication between these groups can help minimize risk and maximize the…
It is hard to read an aviation journal these days without being left with the distinct impression that electric power plants and autonomy are poised to become ubiquitous in aviation….
