The app is geared towards owners of small personal aircrafts like Cessnas and other propeller planes.


The idea behind was to change the current way to insure small personal aircrafts. Currently it’s mandatory to hold a ground and flight cover, renewable every twelve months. So why not give the possibility to pilots to insure the aicraft only when they make a flight?



Originally the app was supposed to offer highly complex insurance calculation based on flight region, terrain and weather at the time of flight. Information like the kind of terrain one would fly over. A large body of water or mountain, how are the winds and weather. If it’s the weather is clear you’d pay a lower premium if not a higher one. If the weather might be extreme, the app was to let you know that you might want to reschedule the flight for another day.



It was later decided to roll-out a test version to see market response before going for a version 2.0 with all of that included.



REGISTRATION

The register process should gather all the information necessary to populate the homepage.


Registration features a segmented design. Having a lot of inputs and empty white space it was the most logical direction.
I’ve opted for a personal approach in the tone of language. The friendly tone will engage the users to follow the multiple registration steps without frustration. 
Once the wizard is completed, the app should have all the information needed to display a fully populated homepage.

HOMEPAGE

Once the registration is done, the homepage welcomes the user with filled with content.


Originally, the homepage featured basic weather information from the user’s home airport. The welcome copy would change based on the type of day. This can be seen in the second screen (from the right to the let) bellow. When scorrling up, the weather info would condense into an info bar.
Eventually this was decided against by the client in order to eliminate the risk of of a claim.



I ended up reusing the main illustration and just a simpe welcome message.

INSURANCE WIZARD

Insuring the plane for a flight is a simple six step process.


Buying the insurance is a simple process starting with picking a date, pilot route and passagers. 
One the most challenging step to design was the route sellection. We went through multiple revisions. From selecting regions on the map to calculating the type of terrain and multi airports. In the end user testing revealed that most users just do round flights. Meaning they take out their plane for a spin and return to the airport they taken off from.
