Aviation insurance stands apart from general insurance due to its complexity and the specialised knowledge required to navigate its policies and contracts effectively. Although the Australian skies present a wide array of aircraft ownership opportunities, they operate within one of the most regulated environments worldwide. This landscape makes understanding and complying with regulations daunting.

At Aviator Risk, we simplify these complexities to provide personalised coverage that aligns with your unique requirements. Our commitment is to offer you strategic and expert advice that is both comprehensive and affordable, ensuring that you’re not just insured but also assured with peace of mind each time you take to the skies.

What we do

Our mission extends beyond offering general insurance coverage; we aim to build long-term relationships with our clients to ensure their aviation ventures remain safe with tailored insurance solutions and comprehensive risk management.

We specialise in creating custom policies for small aircraft, UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), and helicopters, as well as hangarkeepers’ liability and additional insurance catered to the needs of the aviation industry, its assets, and associated businesses.

Aviation policies are unique in their ability to incorporate numerous endorsements, many of which enhance standard coverage at no additional cost. However, many aircraft owners who manage their insurance independently may not fully understand or overlook these available endorsements, leaving them vulnerable to various risks.

At Aviator Risk, we leverage our deep understanding of the industry to bridge these gaps. We take a proactive approach to risk management and provide you with insights and expert advice you need to remain compliant and safe. We cover all potential risks and advise strategies to mitigate them, ensuring you’re always prepared and protected. Our commitment to fostering a long-lasting relationship means we’re here for you, from policy inception to claim resolution, offering ongoing support to keep your operations soaring smoothly.

Why might you need an aviation insurance broker?

As brokers, we advocate for you from the initial policy setup, through renewals, to handling claims. We eliminate the time-consuming hassle of comparing policies as we tailor coverage to suit your aircraft’s operational requirements and identify essential policy extensions.

In the event of a claim, we oversee the process, addressing all relevant details and liaising with the insurer on your behalf, ensuring a stress-free and seamless resolution process.

The specific nature of your business dictates the level of liability risk you face, which can then be mitigated by selecting coverage from one, two, or all three of these sections.

Most businesses require Section 1 as a minimum requirement. A brief description of the cover provided by each section follows:
