AOPA’s Strategic Aviation Insurance Partner


Certified Flight Instructors Insurance

Protecting you is as important to us as the job you do.

There is perhaps no more important job in aviation that being a CFI. That’s why at AssuredPartners Aerospace, we’ve created coverage options that are every bit as comprehensive as the flight lessons you teach. Whether you're an instructor/owner, giving lessons in a borrowed or rented aircraft, full-time or part-time, we can provide comprehensive coverage for both professional and personal use. Several of us here were flight instructors before we became insurance professionals, so you absolutely count on us to guide you well, just as you do with your students.

Benefits Summary for CFI Renter Insurance

As a CFI, you're covered for loss or occurrences arising from your professional liability during completed flight instruction services, flight reviews, or a check ride conducted by you in a rented aircraft. This includes:

  • $3,000 Medical Payments coverage for each passenger including the insured.
  • $1,000 Personal Effects coverage.
  • $10,000 Search and Rescue expense coverage.
  • $10,000 Runway Foaming and Emergency expense coverage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Coverage is extended to a loss or occurrence arising from your professional malpractice as respects ground instruction, flight instruction, flight reviews or check rides conducted by you in the non-owned aircraft.

In the event of an accident, you can protect yourself from skyrocketing legal fees through the legal defense benefit under the renter policy. That means if you have a claim against you, the policy will provide you with legal defense as added protection. This is an important benefit since attorney fees are often $400 or more per hour. Legal fees can add up quickly, and the average legal defense cost is over $25,000!

Our policy is designed for CFI's who receive a 1099 and instructing on a freelance basis. It does NOT cover CFIs who receive a W2 for the instruction they give.
