About Us

Aircraft Risk Company (ARC) is an authorised financial services provider, specialising in aviation insurance and associated risks. The company was started in 2005 by Darren Gallias with the specific focus of providing personalised aviation insurance solutions to the aviation industry. It was our fresh and innovative approach as well as our strategic partners, which enabled ARC to become one of the leading aviation insurance brokerages in South Africa.

One of our major strengths is the valued relationships which have been built with both the local and overseas insurers. ARC has contracts with and supports the local aviation insurance companies. This has proved beneficial to our clients as the local insurers have provided competitive solutions to our clients during difficult market conditions.

ARC’s competitive edge is its relationship with its overseas broker partners. ARC were authorised as a Lloyds Open Market Correspondent in 2009. ARC has partnered with Aon Limited, who is one of the largest Aviation Insurance Brokerages in the world. Aon Ltd is a well-respected international broking house which we are fortunate enough to have as a partner. 

The ARC team has vast experience in the aviation insurance industry. It is this dynamic and innovative company that has attracted some of the most respected people in the industry. We realise that our company is built on the strength of our relationships with our clients. In an industry where we provide an intangible product, we are absolutely focused on client service. Our brokers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our services are often required outside of office hours and we are always available to assist our clients.

ARC specialises in both the airline and general aviation sectors. Our large client base has enabled us to negotiate unique products with comprehensive policy coverage at unparalleled premiums.

ARC has a large rotor wing portfolio that has grown to one of the largest in South Africa. Our understanding of the rotor wing market has enabled us to negotiate policy coverage, which is unsurpassed in the South African aviation insurance industry.
