MEOB Posted August 19, 2014 Author Report Share Posted August 19, 2014 Insurance companies don't write anything in without the company approving it. Companies do this to get cheaper rates and hide behind my insurance won't let me do it. Just like all those big companies that insist their insurance company won't let them fly low timers. Yet the start up and MA and PA companies can fly low timers and do full on auto's. Thats so true. I know of one operator that is one of the largest in Canada if not the largest and in my neck of the woods they always do full ons with some restrictions not sure if thats the case with all there bases or not. Now this operator has been around for ever and the people in the right places probably understand the industry and the benefit of doing them. Yet most other big companies, like just looking has said come up with the insurance excuses. But I also know of a lot of big operators that are owned or bought out by some rich guy that does not have any experience in the helicopter world and there upper management usually ends up being just as inexperienced as the changes start coming. But hey Im not the one cutting the cheques I just get to see the results of penny pinching. But like Just Looking has stated if the insurance companies are preventing low timers as well this industry is going to be a lonely place in the years to come. Be a bunch of old guys beating around that can't remember what its like to actually land a auto. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
