Aircraft Insurance: What is Crown Indemnity cover?

The UK Ministry of Defence often requires the owners of civilian aircraft who wish to use their airfields to hold a higher level of third party liability cover under their aircraft insurance than the normal minimum required by law. This cover option therefore provides a higher level of such liability cover (£7,500,000) while your aircraft is in operation at a UK MOD airfield.

Note this cover option is only available if you have also arranged Liability cover under you aviation insurance policy.
