Passing your annual medical examination

You will have had a stringent medical examination when you first started training, and you will undergo regular check-ups throughout your career. You will therefore be aware that a relatively insignificant ailment that would not stop an office-based employee from working could see you grounded for a considerable time or even end your flying career.

Peace of mind

We all feel we are immortal, especially the younger we are, but you cannot predict what hurdles life has in store for you. Whilst most people insure their house and contents, too few are as careful as to insure against losing the job and income that is paying for it.

Whilst we cannot stop you from falling ill, Loss of Licence cover from Flightcrew can give you that peace of mind that your debts and your bills can be taken care of.
