Insurance for young pilots? by Graham Drinkell[_2_]
I have always encouraged and allowed young capable pilots to fly my aerobatic Pilatus B4PC11AF. It now seems, insurance companies have prohibited me from allowing young enthusiastic pilots to fly my B4. Aerobatic flying is a very safe sport-the pilots are more attuned than XC pilots. Most...
