Aviation Insurance covers Physical damage insurance provided to cover loss or damage to the insured’s aircraft, while it is in motion, not in motion or for both. This type of cover will typically pay for repairs and reinstatement of the aircraft to the condition that it was in before the incident, subject to certain exclusions and policy conditions which may apply. If the aircraft is not repairable an agreed amount may be paid, known as the agreed value, which is usually agreed with the insured at inception and is noted in the policy
1. Hull insurance
Hull insurance typically covers all parts that would normally be affixed to the aircraft and the labor to repair the aircraft after incident. It may also include portable equipment (e.g., handheld radios and headsets) if stated in the policy.
Provides indemnity for the aircraft owner/insured for their legal obligations for bodily injury and property damage, aircraft hull insurance provides financial reimbursement to the aircraft owner/insured for the “agreed” or “stated” value of the aircraft.

The amount of coverage depends on your policy. Having the bare minimum policy may not be good enough in the event of an accident. What the insurance company pays may not be enough to fully cover the repairs, leaving you with the balance. It’s important to calculate how much insurance you really need in the event of having to repair or replace your aircraft.
