Airline pilot joining RMR/TA


I've had a look through the forums on here and ARRSE but can't find an answer.

I'm an airline pilot but still want to join the reserves, preferably the RMR. Before I approach my airline, has anyone heard of any other pilots that are serving reservists?

I'm curious as to how the insurance would work, obviously the slightest injury can lose me my job and my existing insurance doesn't cover war. Is there a services insurance scheme for injuries sustained in service?

Thanks for your help
Also, look at the link at the top of the page for Forces Financial - they provide insurance services

Forces Financial is the only provider who has consistently supported the HM Forces with immediate life cover when deployed against war risks* including:
nuclear, biological and chemical warfare,
those deployed to Iraq
* As part of our optional term life cover with our Personal Accident insurance.

There are lots of Reservist pilots that fly commercially full time.

R.e insurance. The MOD has arranged a policy called PAX. This policy is only open to members of HM Forces and their associated reserves. It is a great policy that has been modified recently because of Iraq/Afghanistan etc. It not only covers death but injury. The amount that you insure yourself for is up to the individual. To give you an idea it costs me £40 pcm for £130,000 of life insurance.

Hope this helps.

There are plenty of ex regular personnel now working as airline pilots who continue to serve in the Royal Naval Reserve. It is very easy to do.
