A global insurer has stepped in fill a major breach after regulatory changes left an entire sector at risk of not having professional indemnity cover.
QBE is now offering PI cover to all for all Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) appointed Approved Testing Officers (ATOs) and flight examiners.
Flight examiners had previously been protected through CASA but from the beginning of this month are required to take out their own cover.
Julian Fraser, QBE National Relationship Manager in Aviation, says providing this cover is an attempt to support our aviation industry.
“Underwriting this indemnity allows us to ensure our valued customers and flight examiners can continue their important contribution to flying training across Australia with confidence and security,” he says.
