We require all our students/renters to carry non-owned aircraft insurance, minimum coverage of $50,000 for physical damage. All policies should have coverage for damage to aircraft/persons/and property. You wouldn’t drive your own car, rent a car, or ride a motorcycle without coverage, so why fly a plane without it either?
