I agree that he should file a claim but I don't think this is correct.
The truck owner shouldn't be bashful about filing an insurance claim under the comprehensive policy. That is NOT typically tied to rates the way collision is. Even collision typically only impacts your rates if you were at fault.
Last time I was shopping for insurance it cost a bit more simply because I had a windshield chip repaired though my insurance. Well it sounds like that goes on some type of clue report and other insurance companies can view it. I expect the same thing applies here but I'm not positive.

If this guy files a claim for a toy hitting his truck, then he had better hope he doesn't lose his coverage in the next year or two, because the company that he tries to get coverage by will view that as a frivolous claim, no doubt. I had a hot water tank explode at around 11:00pm, and leak all over my wood floors and warp it to the point that it had to be replaced two years ago, and when all was fixed, it was everything I could do to keep my insurance coverage, after the insurance company made ALL of the suggestions of what needed to be done.

And since there was no discussion of responsibility of when something goes wrong during the flight, sorry but, he's responsible for his own truck, and the newbie is responsible for his own heli.

Well, i think the pilot should pay for his own truck, he should not expect the owner to pay for it coz thats just stupid.

That said, if it turns out that there was a mechanical fault, and the owner is friends with the experienced pilot and it was a genuine mistake (build error on the owners part that was missed or not immediately noticable by the experienced pilot), then the owner should at least offer to pay for some of the damage. That would probably be the right thing to do if he indeed asked the experienced pilot for his help.

Now that said, if the pilot was hot dogging above his truck, then too bad for him.

This is a situation we have far too little information to make an informed decision about.

IMHO the "experienced" pilot needs to suck it up and pay for his truck's damage that he caused. He also needs to realize that he is not all that "experienced".

Make it simple .
What if experienced pilot fly in to spectator and kill a person.
of course cop will come over grab the pilot not a owner of the Heli
( who service jail times)
as soon as you take control , you should take responsibility ,
the owner should take care his Heli . The experienced pilot should take care his truck.
Because the onwner did not ask experienced pilot fly in to his truck.
He only ask fly around and test.

Suppose the "experienced pilot" was someone paid by the manufacturer, in order to do test flights. Now the manufacturer made a mistake and mechanical failure causes an accident.

Would you then still hold experienced pilot responsible for the accident? I think not, he was just doing his job for the manufacturer.

May I suggest that the above case is very similar, only that he offered to test for free?

Experienced pilot pays for fixing his own vehicle and heli owner pays for fixing his helicopter. Experienced pilot is out of line asking for money to repair the vehicle he crashed into.
That is MHO also.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

The heli did the damage. The person flying the heli was in control. Therefore I say the "experienced pilot" is held to a higher level of standard due to their experience. They should pay for the damage. You can make a claim against your insurance for the heli, once the insurance company settles they will subrogate the claim and go after the "experienced pilot". Insurance companies like being made whole also.

Personally I think it's all on the "experienced pilot". Just like many people here already said once that guy took over the controls it was up to him. Regardless of what the heli did. Why was a his truck that close to a heli flying anyways? If he's so experienced, he should know things do happen.

I fly with a buddy of mine and we share each others heli's all the time. It has been discussed that if something goes wrong what would we do. Our thought's were if a crash is obviously due to some kind of mechanical failure that it would be on the owner (if we could figure that was the cause) cause it would have happen to anyone. But if my buddy drive my bird into the ground try'n to do a crazy trick than it's all on him. We have both agreed on those circumstances and we fly each others equiptment all the time. I think that is part of the sport.

They should, and I think everyone should talk about these things before flight. This stuff does happen. I wish you luck with this and hope you get everything figured out.

I stand my ground ,but the OP should state why the guy thinks it's on the heli owner.It's only fair to hear both sides and if he won't say why it's kinda shady.
