About Global Flying Loss of Training Expenses insurance

For those considering a challenging and exciting career as a professional pilot, the significant cost involved in obtaining a commercial pilot licence is a key consideration.

Global Flying Services can offer valuable and inexpensive protection against the possibility of incurring considerable debt as a trainee pilot if you are unable to complete your training course and recover your training fees as a result of an accident or illness. Our loss of training expenses insurance meets the requirements of major banks offering loans for training, providing you with further peace of mind for the financial aspect of your training course.

We also offer a seamless conversion to a loss of licence policy for trainee pilots upon completion of training and entering employment as a commercial pilot.
