Insurance Check Out Form

Post by Cessna 180 » Fri Aug 02, 2019 12:20 pm

Does anyone have a copy of a checkout form they use for insurance purposes or at least areas on the form that the insurance company may look for? I've been asked to complete a checkout for another pilot on a Cessna I fly regularly, but other than flight school forms, I can't find any sort of example document!

AFAIK there is no form. I have always just written a letter which described what I had done as part of the checkout and the insurance companies have always been happy with that

Perfect, thank you. Do you add any sort of "disclaimer" to protect yourself in case the pilot has an accident etc?

I would ask the insurance company if they have their own form, some do. If not, then just do as suggested above. There is no need for any disclaimer. What would you say anyways?

My experience has been that many insurers have their own form, which I have found range from relevant to inadequate. Best to use the insurer's form if you're applying to them. That said, a broker may take a letter with the pertinent information in lieu of the form, but get agreement from them first.
