Pilots Loss of Licence

Gallagher Pilots Loss of Licence insurance policy has been created to cover lump sum and/or monthly benefits in the event of bodily injury or illness. Bodily injury or illness could result in a long or short term unfitness assessment being issued by the Licence issuing authority.

Pilot in cairns

As a pilot, you’re only too aware of how relatively insignificant health problems, which would not stop a desk-based employee working, can result in the temporary or even permanent loss of your medical certificate. This could lead to potential loss of income and financial uncertainty. Having the right cover in place is vital to help support your livelihood.

Gallagher Pilot Loss of licence insurance is a portable policy, meaning if you decide to change employers there will be no lapse in cover. The policy can also cover both Fixed Wing and Rotary Wing pilots. The policy also includes additional benefits such as Accidental Death.
