  • If you are making payments on it like you would a house, I would say definitely.
    I am pretty sure if you use even a private airport they would require it in a contract.
    That would only leave you flying from your yard and landing in your yard or someone else's.
    Somehow though I think that just like a car you would have to have insureance to maintain your license.

  • I know it has to be registered
    It depends on what you use it for
    I live in a town where people have aircraft that they actually built,and are considered recreational vehicles(lol)
    Maybe if you BUY one,but insurance is more for protecting someone else in case of accidents,so maybe not. It's not like there's a high incidence of planes crashing into each other midair

  • Regulations

    As of 2010, federal law requires interstate air carriers and air taxi operators to maintain $300,000 per person and $20,000,000 per aircraft insurance. Airplanes with less than 60 seats or 18,000 maximum takeoff weight need $2,000,000 insurance. Certain air taxi operators may qualify for lower coverage, $75,000 per person and $300,000 per occurrence. Alaska, California, Maryland Minnesota, Missouri Virginia and South Carolina have mandatory liability requirements.

  • Are you having your hair done on the aircraft? Can't imagine why this is in Beauty and Style, but if it is a gift for someone, it would be great if you got insurnace to go along with a private plane.

  • confusedGee IDK, I guess since the limo & mansion are insured, the aircraft would have to be too.

  • No. But if you want to protect yourself, you have to insure your aircraft from public and passenger liability. There are various types of insurance such as Public liability insurance, Passenger liability insurance, Combined Single Limit (CSL) and Ground risk hull insurance not in motion. These insurance cover are designed to protect from property damages and injury. Aircraft liability insurance offers various types of insurance coverage that you can choose from that is suited to your requirements. In countries where it is not mandatory to have the aircraft insured, that is a huge responsibility of the owner or pilot of an aircraft if it meets an accident when it is uninsured.
