For a pilot to get their licence, they have to train for many years and undergo substantial financial costs. It is a demanding job, with few other professions requiring such rigorous health checks.
In addition, even the slightest of medical problems could end a pilot's career and result in a loss of earnings and possible financial hardship.
Our loss of licence product ensures that you are covered for such an occurrence. We have created an exclusive package with QBE to give clients competitively priced coverage over a broad spectrum.
Our pilot personal accident insurance policy covers all injuries to pilots regardless of liability.
Due to the stringent requirements for a pilot's health, it would be ideal for them to be covered 24-hours a day for accidents that occure both at work and at home.
A professional pilot is usually covered by workers compensation while working but not in their free time; however, a pilot working in the private sector generally has no cover.
In the event of an accident and injury, our insurance package will ensure that a pilot and their family are financially supported.
In April 2009, Austbrokers ABS Aviation formed as the result of a joint venture between Austbrokers Sydney and Jeremy Birtwistle.
Jeremy began his career as a broker for Lloyds of London and moved to Australia in 1994. He has more than 35 years' experience in aviation insurance. He has worked as an international broker ever since he arrived in 1994 and created a successful large aviation division at the company he worked at before moving to Austbrokers.
Martin Williams began working in the aviation insurance sector in 2007 after graduating from Macquarie University with a bachelor of commerce degree. He was a colleague of Jeremy's previously to joining Austbrokers in 2009.
