Pathfinder Indemnity Company, Ltd was formed in the British Virgin Islands in 1986 and provides insurance
coverage for Robinson helicopters only. Pathfinder has an office in the Bahamas and can be contacted by
sending either an e-mail to
or a fax to (242) 352-3932. Currently, all their interactions with customers is via e-mail or fax, i.e.
Pathfinder does not provide a phone number to call their office.
Even though Pathfinder's premiums are generally significantly lower than the premiums charged by
domestic carriers, there are also major differences between Pathfinder and legacy carriers in terms
of their hull and liability coverage structures. Helicopter owners and operators must carefully compare
not only the quoted premiums but also the fine print of the proposed coverages to determine what coverage
may be best.

you should know when shopping for insurance on your piston-powered helicopter.
