crew of aircraft

crew of aircraft
This term does not have an absolutely unvarying legal significance, but must always be considered in its context, whether used in connection with watercraft or aircraft. Le Breton v Penn Mut. Life Ins. Co. 223 La 984, 67 So 2d 565, 45 ALR2d 446. It may include the air crew assisting in the operation of the craft while in the air, and a landing or ground crew assisting in the handling of the plane on the ground; but the word has no unvarying significance and may consist of only one person. 8 Am J2d Avi § 33. The operator of an airport, complying with the request of the owner and operator of an airplane, stored on the former's grounds, when asked to assist the latter in pushing the plane from the hangar and in starting the plane by cranking the propeller, is a member of the crew within the coverage of an aviation accident policy. Miner v Western Casualty & Surety Co. 241 Iowa 530, 41 NW2d 557, 14 ALR2d 1358. As the term appears in an aviation exception clause of a life or accident insurance policy, the "crew" is not limited to persons who actually operate an airplane in flight, but is inclusive of attendants or stewards aboard a passenger plane in the regular course of their employment. 29A Am J Rev ed Ins § 1266. On the other hand, a provision of a life insurance policy excluding from full coverage an aircraft pilot, instructor, officer, or other member of the crew, appears from the context not to apply to all occupants notwithstanding permissible use of the term "crew" in its largest sense as a "company of people associated together." Le Breton v Penn Mut. Life Ins. Co. 223 La 984, 67 So 2d 565, 45 ALR2d 446.
