As a pilot, your biggest asset is your ability to earn an income. What would happen if your career ended earlier than expected? How would that affect your current lifestyle and retirement dreams?
At Aviator Investment Management, we understand firsthand how quickly your aviation career can end. After a heart attack and, five years later, a heart bypass surgery, Wyatt Stedman’s aviation career came to an abrupt end. While he wasn’t left physically disabled, he was considered medically disqualified to fly and lost his medical certificate. Unfortunately for pilots, Wyatt’s story isn’t uncommon.
Pilot disability insurance that specifically covers such scenarios is critical for all pilots. However, both corporate and commercial pilots have always had a difficult time securing proper insurance coverage. In the past, the majority of insurance companies have told pilots that they are “uninsurable” because there are too many factors that could cause them to lose their medical certificate. Due to strict medical qualifications, many health issues that would allow employees in the traditional workplace to continue working would cost a pilot his or her career.
While traditional insurance carriers have effectively turned their backs on this occupation, we have personally designed an exclusive contract with Petersen International Underwriters (PIU) designed to cover pilots if they lose their medical certificate and are no longer able to fly. Through our affiliation with PIU, we can help pilots obtain insurance coverage that supplements their group benefits. This coverage is designed to help protect them if they were to lose their license (and, as a result, their career) due to an injury or disability.
We know how fragile the aviation profession can be with unforeseen medical issues. We can help you put a plan in place that will provide the income to continue your lifestyle and financial balance for you and your family. Contact us to learn more about our exclusive contract with PIU and how it may benefit you.
