Statement from the insurance companies

If you have a loss

If an occurrence happens, you should notify the Aviation Managers, in writing, as soon as reasonably possible. Include the time and place of the occurrence and the names and addresses of any injured people and witnesses.

What you must do

You agree to notify the police if your aircraft, or any of its parts, is stolen. You will send us copies of all legal documents if you’re sued or someone files a claim against you. You agree to help us in obtaining and giving evidence, attending hearings and trials, and getting witnesses to testify. And you won’t make any statements without our permission, except to government officials. In addition, you agree not to voluntarily make any payments or take on any other legal responsibility without our permission. If you do, we may not reimburse you – even if the loss or expense would have been covered by your policy. We will reimburse you for money spent for emergency first aid to others at the time of an accident.

You agree to give us a sworn Proof of Loss Statement within ninety (90) days of the loss. You also agree to allow us or anyone we designate to question you under oath and to show us the damaged property and any records you have to prove the loss.

Salvage

If an aircraft covered under “Your Aircraft Physical Damage Coverage” is damaged, you must do all you can to protect it from further loss. If you don’t, we won’t be responsible for further loss to the aircraft. We will pay all reasonable expenses you incur in protecting your aircraft from further loss.
