Aircrew disability insurance
Professional protection for cockpit and cabin crew
Insuring the risk of aircrew disability is one of the key insurance covers for cockpit and cabin crew members. Changes in recreational behaviour and engaging in more extreme sports (paragliding, mountainbiking, parachuting) are the main reasons why the risk of accidents and therefore a permanent or temporary disability to fly has increased.
Working in an aircraft cockpit or cabin is itself a job posing special challenges, resulting in a higher risk of loss of income than in other professions. This is why many insurers make a distinction between a disability insurance for aircrew or for other occupations. There are only a few specialised insurance companies who will protect against loss of income in a way that meets the special demands of aircrew members.
