Insurance details in respect of aircraft
EC Regulation 785/2004 on insurance requirements for air carriers and aircraft
operators requires that all aircraft (subject to some exclusions) flying within
the European Economic Area carry minimum levels of insurance in respect of
third parties, passengers, baggage and cargo. In the UK, evidence of insurance
is being requested as part of the registration process as one of the methods of
ensuring compliance with the new regulation.
The following is an estimate of the minimum insurance requirements based on the
information held by the CAA. Please read the notes that follow the estimate.
It is the operators or air carriers responsibility to ensure that the aircraft is
insured in accordance with the requirements of EC Regulation 785/2004 at all
Manufacturer:AV ROE AND CO LTD
Type:AVRO VULCAN B2

In order to give aircraft owners guidance on the required minimum levels of
cover required under the regulation the CAA is providing an estimate of the
minimum amounts required against each UK Registered aircraft.
It should be noted that the estimate is based on a calculation which takes into
account the following variable items :-
- The maximum take-off mass of the aircraft – taken from the details held by the
CAA from the aircraft’s flight manual or from another CAA derived source.
- The number of passengers carried - either the number declared by the operator
or air carrier (if supplied), or the design maximum number of passengers for
- The exchange rate from SDR’s (Special Drawing Rights) to Pounds Sterling taken
from the IMF website on the date given.
It should be noted that no estimate of the minimum requirements in respect of
cargo is given as no centrally held data concerning cargo capacity is held. For
aircraft in commercial operations the minimum requirement is 19 SDR’s per
It should also be noted that as the estimates given are based on a number of
variable items, if any of the items used in the calculation are incorrect then
this will affect the amounts quoted.
In particular, as the estimate is based on a fluctuating exchange rate between
SDR’s and Pounds Sterling the operator or air carrier must ensure that they
have adequate cover at all times.
For the purposes of this calculation if the Maximum take-off mass of the
aircraft is less than 500kg it is assumed that the aircraft is used for
non-commercial purposes or local flight instruction which does not entail
crossing international borders. As such no estimate for the minimum required
cover for risks of war or terrorism is given. If the aircraft has been declared
as being used for commercial operations then an estimate of the minimum
required cover risks of war or terrorism is displayed.
