There are insurance products out there for that, but the airline/flight department has to purchase it for their pilots. I would imagine that they availability of such coverage varies between operators.

I would not recommend Real Estate unless you know a bunch of people locally. It takes a very long time to get established in the business and you will be working with a lot of people that can get qualified after taking a three-week class. Otherwise not exactly a high caliber bunch that can be very frustrating to work with. I am not bad mouthing all agents just stating the facts. Drive up to MCO and talk to the folks at FlightSafety. They are always looking for instructors. I knew a guy that lived in PBI and had a crashpad in MCO.

FSI has a Center at PBI. The only fixed wing aircraft they train on there is the Piaggio P-180, everything else is Sikorsky. The pay is decent and you're not spending money on a crashed in MCO or the gas to drive back and forth. That being said, there are more opportunities at the MCA Center.
