I really can't figure out where you are going sometimes. First off, yes, a responsible pilot should have insurance. This would cover the unlikely event as a flyway that ends up causing damage outside...

Don't even get me started on FLYSAFE. First off, their video promo uses video that was taken by other people and used without permission. Their entire premise is to get money from people who think...
