Is the IPPI card accepted in your country ?
What is the minimum legal requirement coverage required in your country ?
There is no legal requirement in that respect in Belgium, but the FBVL asks foreign pilots to be insured in legal liability for an amount of 1'500'000 euros for third party liability insurance (the FBVL insurance insures up to 1'600'000 euros).
What additional coverage does your country recommend (such as medical insurance, search and rescue etc...) ?
The FBVL membership provides a coverage of 2'500 Euros for medical and rescue expenses, 3'750 Euros in case of fatality and 7'500 Euros in case of total permanent invalidity.
This is not mandatory but recommended.
Is your NAC prepared to provide a special insurance coverage for guest pilots who do not comply with your national law ?
FBVL offers its membership including the insurance coverage for 65 Euros for guest pilots.
