Flight instructors are a very special part of aviation. They are the normally the first person that a non-pilot will learn to fly with. When a licensed pilot pursues advance skills to obtain a higher pilot rating, again the flight instructor is this teacher.
Flight instructors assume a greater extent l of liability due to the work they perform. They must let the student practice the instructions without jeopardizing the flight to the point of an accident.
A flight instructor may be an individual working as an independent contractor for themselves, or as part of a flight school. In most cases they are flying aircraft that they do not own.
To protect the flight instructor from potential financial loss they should have a non-owned insurance policy. The policy should be specially designed for the flight instructor. In the event of an accident you will be protected against a potential loss.
AvQuest Insurance Service represents several companies that offer both Personal Non Owned Aircraft Insurance, and Non-Owned Aircraft Insurance to include the use of flight instruction.
