I see that HPAC provides 3rd-party liability insurance that covers students while under supervision of an instructor...but what do schools do above that to protect themselves. Is there anything you can do to protect yourself legally? Is there any additional insurance that instrucutors purchase?

I am sure there is nothing to protect you from negligence and other than incorporating your business to keep your personal assets protected, is there anything else you can do?

I'm considering doing some instruction (getting certified) but the liability has always been my biggest concern.

Talk to Randy Rauck about his ideas for an "Instructor's Association" with in HPAC...something along the lines of the Sport Parachute Instructor's of Canada group. I agree that there needs to be a group driven by the instructors. With more interest, maybe you guys can get something going.

Our Insurance Chair, Greeg Humphries is currently looking at some European insurers who do cover instructors for liability (in Europe).
He has to see if this is exportable to Canada.

To be followed....
