I sure hope that bird was insured…

Self-insured by the US taxpayers……

Replacing the bird, even if it wasn't insured, is cheaper than replacing the pilot (much cheaper than paying for the medical care of a disabled former-pilot!)

Glad the guy got out, but I suspect you should be able to train, or provide medical care for many pilots at $90 USD – $120 USD Million a pop.
