FAQ´S

Frequently asked questions

PilotMovers offers access to medical insurance at discounted rates or free of charge depending on the airline you work for.

We provide you with the information of our reliable partners and you apply directly to them for your medical insurance.

In certain airlines PilotMovers will provide 100% of the cost of the medical insurance as a monthly refund covering this cost. In the airlines that PilotMovers does not cover the cost the pilot will have to bear the monthly fee, but in any case the price will be very competitive and at a fraction of the cost that similar products offer for regular applicants.

In any case we do not hold a corporate PilotMovers medical insurance policy because we believe this would go against the interests of our pilots and colleagues. When you enrol an agency or an airline, you get into the corporate insurance policy but whenever you decide to leave the job, they withdraw you and your family (if applicable) from the medical insurance policy. If you our any member of your family ever had a serious medical condition, you will have many problems to enrol with a new insurance provider. And if you do, this costs will be very high. When we started PilotMovers our goal was to offer the best possible service in a very honest way to serve our pilots and colleagues.

This is why at PilotMovers we decided not to have a corporate policy obliging us to withdraw you and your family if you ever decide to look for another job. What we offer is a third party solution that you can carry from one employer to another so your family interests and health coverage will always prevail. We are the first and only agency with this policy. At PilotMovers we are all colleagues and we know how important health insurance is. We would never allow corporate interests over people’s interests.

Yes, PilotMovers offers access to Loss of License & Income insurance at discounted rates.

We provide you with the information of our reliable partners and you apply directly to them for your Loss of License & Income insurance.

The amounts insured are 500.000 US$ for loss of license and there is also a small loss of income benefit (applicable after 15 days of illness) associated to this product. The price is flat for all ages and quite competitive.

In China, due to the demanding aviation medical examinations we are the only agency offering an insurance with a local provider so the CAAC medical result will be the only one taken into account. In other words, some global insurance companies will insure your license but will refer to european or american Aviation Medical Evaluators meaning you will lose your CAAC license and not get the promised amounts if you did not lose your FAA/EASA/ICAO license, which is a common occurrence.

Our What we Offer Area has the brochures, and contact details to easily apply for the one you are interested in and also deal with the issues you may have once you have enrolled them.

This is quite a common question amongst our colleagues.

Normally many pilots want to apply directly to the airline so they get a direct and local contract with the airline. This has many benefits, one of them that taxes are fully paid by the airline and there are no tax issues back home.

Somehow, agencies are seen as tax avoidance entities and most pilots prefer a direct contract with the airline.

PilotMovers operates in a different way. We offer the contracts we would like to sign. As simple as that. We are also pilots and we would not accept certain contracts offered by some airlines where no or little taxes are paid on behalf of the pilot. We do not work with those airlines. Period.

When we sign an agreement with an airline, we make sure that the airline declares they will pay local taxes on behalf of the pilot and will provide a tax report. This way and thanks to double taxation agreements most (if not all) taxes applicable in your home country will be paid, exactly the same way as if you were on a direct contract with the airline. Having said that, we always recommend you do your due diligence and at least get professional tax advice both in the country you are tax resident and the country you are citizen to avoid any future problems.

In some, very specific airlines we even provide direct contract with the airline.

This means that going through PilotMovers you get the good things of a direct contract with local taxes paid and at the same time full support of a world class agency to prepare for the screening, relocate in Asia and solve any problems you may have during your contract. PilotMovers offers the best of both options.

Because we are pilots.

We strive to achieve what we would like for ourselves. This puts PilotMovers in a unique position, we understand our colleagues and we address better than anybody else the problems and issues affecting our fellow pilots, because we also suffer the same issues.

From the first contact you make with us, we consider your experience, your needs, your goals and then we offer you what we think is best in order to achieve what you want with the background you have.

This is why we designed super easy, to the point, screening material like our exclusive China Pilot Screening Book and exam database. This will make you ace your screening and face the process with far better chances than through any other provider. Results are there, we have achieved over 85% success rate, 4 times better than the second best agency.

The knowledge and great deal of time and effort to design this material has not been performed by any other agency. We did it, because we understand our needs as pilots.

We also provide travel benefits, banking solutions, insurance, and other services required by our colleagues and their families. All this benefits are in a specially designed intranet called MEMBERS area in our website and you can get all the information, application forms and contacts to apply for what we believe is the best and most honest option provided.

PilotMovers believes in a strong customer oriented, proactive approach and we designed a state of the art quality system able to track all actions we perform to service our pilots, their problems and solutions provided. Thanks to this system our managers are informed real time about the progress of your problem and step in should our team experience trouble to solve the issue. Our managers then take an active part and address the issue. In regular intervals we also perform internal audits to assure the best service possible is offered and learn from our mistakes. If you ever feel something is wrong, you just contact us and we will try our best to satisfy your demands.

We cannot promise perfection, but we promise hard work and dedication.

PilotMovers, by pilots for pilots.

 

When we sign an agreement with an airline, we make sure that the airline declares they will pay local taxes on behalf of the pilot and will provide a tax report. This way and thanks to double taxation agreements most (if not all) taxes applicable in your home country will be already paid, exactly the same way as if you were on a direct contract with the airline. Having said that, we always recommend you do your due diligence and at least get professional tax advice both in the country you are tax resident and the country you are citizen to avoid any future problems.

This means that going through PilotMovers you get the good things of a direct contract with local taxes paid and at the same time full support of a world class agency to prepare for the screening, relocate in Asia and solve any problems you may have during your contract. PilotMovers offers the best of both options.

Again, in any case we strongly advise our fellow pilots to always seek for a tax advisor who can help to clarify every particular case.

We provide travel benefits, banking solutions, insurance, real estate and other services required by our colleagues and their families. All these benefits are in our What we Offer Area of our website and you can get all the information, application forms and contacts to apply for what we believe is the best and most honest option provided.
