Airplanes were meant to be flown, and certainly the sharing of them is a normal and enjoyable practice throughout the aviation community. In addition to the social aspect of using other people’s airplanes, sometimes it is necessary to borrow or rent airplanes for a business trip if one’s aircraft is not available due to scheduling or repairs. With these thoughts in mind, exactly what type of insurance coverage is available when a company or an individual flies non-owned aircraft?

Reprinted from Best's Review December 1987

Coverage for aviation risks requires both specialized underwriting and production facilities, making this type of insurance a natural for the excess and surplus lines marketplace.
