NATA's Loss of License programme reaches sign-up milestone
An exclusive insurance programme by NATA is intended for Part 135, Part 125, Part 91K and Part 91 operators, and its fundamental role is to offer income replacement for pilots who lose their medicals.

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) has now enrolled more than 1,000 pilots in its Loss of License Insurance Program, administered by Harvey Watt & Co. and underwritten by Symetra. This exclusive insurance programme is intended for Part 135, Part 125, Part 91K and Part 91 operators, and its key component offers income replacement for pilots who lose their FAA medicals.

“Our Loss of License Insurance Program was developed to help our members and the general aviation industry to combat the pilot shortage that we face today. By expanding the benefits offered to pilots, companies can better recruit, protect, and retain pilots, making this one of our most sought after membership benefits,” says COO Timothy Obitts.

“Harvey Watt & Co. began the first Loss of License Insurance Program in 1951 to protect professional pilots and their families from devastating financial loss due to disability. We were happy to partner with NATA and are proud to see the growth the programme has made since its inception. Harvey Watt & Co. strives to provide the highest level of protection at the best value with our rich history and rapport with pilots, policy makers, doctors and insurance companies. We help keep pilots in the cockpit and get them back to work sooner,” adds Harvey Watt & Co ops director Rob Alston.
