Franz Smit of PilotInsure has been my aviation insurance broker since 2014 and I am very happy with what he has done for me. He managed to get me insured on much better products than I had before dealing with PilotInsure. Franz displays excellent customer service and is always available for queries and discussions. He genuinely tries to get the best products for you that are available and I highly recommend him and PilotInsure for any pilot out there!

Client Testimonials

I have been a client of Franz Smit since 2011. Franz impressed me from the outset with his detailed knowledge of insurance products and his dedication to ensuring that I was getting the absolute best cover for my personal circumstances. During April 2012 I had the misfortune of suffering a heart attack. Franz handled my insurance claim in a speedy and professional manner and made sure that the only thing I had to worry about was my recovery. I highly recommend Franz for his excellent service, knowledge and dedication to ensure that you are getting the best cover at all times.

Pilotinsure helped me secure life insurance and impairment cover, without feeling that I have been penalised for being a professional pilot. Owner Franz Smit has a real passion for aviation and I could see this enthusiasm in his work while finding the best products for my personal requirements.
