2. There are pilots who transition from FW to helicopters and don't even have the hours to instruct with their brand new CFII. (200)

(I expected more emails from these types)

 

3. Does anybody have a clue what adding a 200-300 hour pilot to a helicopter policy that had aerial hunting coverage?

(Hint: It's a lot)

 

 

Since I was being critical, I'll reply.

 

2 - I started giving Helicopter tours with 100 rotorcraft hours in the logbook.

 

3 - Policies can be written with exclusions. A Named Insured is always best route. It help when you have a kick ass broker. It helps when you get the personal endorsement of someone that the insurance broker trusts completely. Aside from that, a "checkride" by the Chief Pilot will satisfy most brokers for having a Named Insured with exclusions.

 

All that said, yes to bring someone on board for only the ride hops at the fair is an involved process that quite frankly wouldn't be worth most peoples times. So for that, props to you.

When he "liked" my post I figured that meant you got it? Maybe he just liked that it wasn't me who got it? :D

I like lots of posts here...it suits me better that way...notice I tend to watch more than type...keeps me learning vs looking ignorant! :D

 

Flying Pig....they left me hangin for a few more days..so cant say for sure just yet but will when I can. Either way the trip out was awesome, and I gained a lot from it. They were stand up guys the whole way and it was nice being considered anyway you slice it.

I am kicking myself in the butt for not seeing this post while I was in Richmond flying rice pollination. I would have been more than happy to fly the R44 in between flying the fields. I appreciate the opportunity your giving to low hour pilots. Thanks Thaddeus
