Flight Training Prerequisites



As the Owner or Operator of an aircraft to be used in training, please complete the following and provide the specified documents to the Lancair Owners and Builders Organization, Inc (LOBO) as indicated below. LOBO must receive these documents before your flight training begins.

  1. If your insurance requires a LOBO endorsed training certificate, please contact your agent and ask if they would provide an endorsement to your insurance that names Lancair Owners and Builder's Organization, Inc. (LOBO) and its Board Of Directors (BOD) as an Additional Insured and if applicable also provide a Waiver of Subrogation. If possible, you may also ask if your instructor could be named as an additional insured as well. Depending on each state, where allowed this insurance should be primary and without any right of contribution from any other insurance to the extent permitted by the insurance policy. Please understand LOBO does not wish to deny/restrict access to instruction to any person whether they have insurance or not. You should also understand your ground/flight instruction is a private contract agreement between you and your flight instructor. LOBO does not schedule or recommend any particular instructor for your training needs.

NOTE: Insurance agents should be familiar with these requests.
