Am I insured if I fly with Wingly?
Passengers, their luggage, and third parties on the ground are automatically covered by the civil liability insurance of the aircraft operator. However, Wingly pilots and passengers benefit from extra coverage if the compulsory insurance is insufficient.
Insurance is at the heart of the services offered by Wingly. We offer our users a unique and carefully designed insurance underwritten by Allianz Global Corporate and Speciality SE (AGC & S) and powered by SAAM Verspieren Group, covering all light aircraft flights across Europe and countries along the Mediterranean coast. Our additional complimentary insurance can cover benefits up to 1 million euros, in addition to the default obligatory insurance covering flights in a light aircraft.
A first in general aviation:
This tailored insurance policy results from the joint efforts between Wingly, SAAM Verspieren Group, and ACGS; three European firms, who are leaders within their respective domains. Wingly’s users can now benefit from this insurance, which has been dubbed: the Aircraft Liability Insurance for the Pilot User.
