Should pilots carry renter’s insurance?

As of July 15, 2023, Leighnor Aircraft LLC will require renter’s insurance to rent our aircraft with at least $5,000 coverage for damage to non-owned aircraft.

If the NTSB or FAA rules an accident “pilot error”, it’s likely the insurance companies will come after the pilot for some of the accident cost. A good aviation renter’s insurance policy will protect against this type of exposure and more.
