Aviation Insurance Association 2018 Annual Conference
On May 1, 2018 at the Aviation Insurance Association’s Annual Conference in Austin, Texas, Paul A. Lange moderated a panel that explored the organizational framework, risk and liability profiles of airshow accidents using actual examples. Airshows are by their very nature exhibitionist, seeking to entertain audiences by demonstrating the very extremes of aircraft and pilot operating envelopes. Airshow sponsors must meet high standards in order to obtain an airshow waiver from the FAA. Obtaining insurance is another high hurdle given the extremely small pool, high risk and limited markets.
