New: Third Party Liability Insurance Offer including Basejumping

In Switzerland a basejumper is subject to the same laws and regulations as a skydiver, as defined by the BAZL/FOCA (Federal Office of Civil Aviation). As such a valid skydiving license is required for basejumping activity and a jumper must have a third party liability insurance.
Up to this day, however, it was not possible in Switzerland to obtain such an insurance that would also cover basejumping – the existing offers would only include hang-gliding and skydiving. However, together with and thanks to Generali  the SBA has now been able to work out a policy that also provides coverage for third party liability as a basejumper. This is not only relevant for Swiss basejumpers, but also for visiting basejumpers from foreign countries whose skydiving and/or hang-gliding liability insurance may not cover basejumping!
Generali offers the following variants:

  • Third party liability insurance covering skydiving, hang-gliding and basejumping.
    - valid for one year, CHF 110.-

  • Third party liability insurance covering basejumping only (ideal for visiting basejumpers).
    - valid 12 months for CHF 75.-
    - valid   3 months for CHF 45.-

The Lauterbrunnen Landingcard (equals SBA membership) is required. For detailed information on coverage and limitations check the insurance terms (Currently only in German, English translation coming soon.)  Download
