Pilots go through years of training and may incur considerable expenses in order to obtain their licenses - add on to that they must fulfill stringent health requirements in order to maintain their licenses. A slight medical issue could ground a pilot for an indefinite period of time and impact their ability to earn an income and maintain their lifestyle.

At Disability Income Protection Group, we offer Loss of License Coverage for Pilots. Pilot Disability Insurance is available for both Individuals and Groups. Loss of License Coverage covers temporary and permanent loss of pilot license.

Loss of License Insurance was created specifically to cover the pilot for a loss of license situation. Professional pilots must meet the minimum health requirements in order to maintain their pilot license. Some individuals have lost their licenses due to their health status even though they did not have a disability. For example, if hypertension is not within the mandatory requirements, the pilot will lose his/her license even though they are not disabled.

Employers Licensing Authority

The purpose of a pilot licensing authority is to guarantee the safety of the passenger of the aircraft by making sure the pilots are in satisfactory physical condition to pilot the aircraft. With so many lives at stake, the importance of the licensing authority cannot be overstated.


The Loss of License Insurance plan has been created to use the licensing authority required by the pilot’s employer. This guarantees that if the individual is grounded due to a loss of license from their licensing authority, they will be able to collect a benefit regardless if they are able to meet the minimum standards from other licensing authorities.
