First off, a quick introduction. I own and fly a Cessna 185, and have: Commercial, IFR MEL, SEL, and SES, and CFII ratings. I have spent hundreds of hours flying and camping in the Idaho back country.
We help insure all makes and models and uses of aircraft and aviation related businesses nationwide. An Aviation Insurance Specialist should be able to obtain and compare quotes from most of the Aircraft Insurance companies, and find you the best coverages and rates available.
We have been doing this for 34 years nationwide, and we do it better than our competition because we spend more time with each client, analyzing all the options, and we do it again at each renewal. Anyone can get a price, but is it really the best price considering your situation? We understand differences between the Insurance companies, such as where they’re most competitive, and how they handle claims, how they rate older pilots, as an example.
Additionally we are available 7 days a week online, and with a Broker if necessary. We spend the extra time because we want to earn your business and keep you as a client for as long as you fly and are in aviation.
Quick Tip: Unless you are self-insuring the hull on your aircraft, you should always insure near its actual value. Under-insuring, gives the insurance company more leverage to total a plane rather than repairing it. Normally, the insurance company has the final option whether to repair or total a plane that has been damaged, and a plane can be totaled with as little as 50% damaged in many cases. If you have added avionics or other upgrades, you would lose that investment if your plane is not insured to the correct value. I have seen many older aircraft totaled for a gear up landing, or a ground loop, that would have been repaired had the plane been insured correctly.
