EAA expands Aircraft Insurance Plan

Several new insurance plan features through the EAA Aircraft Insurance Plan were announced Tuesday at AirVenture. Since the April announcement of coverage for powered parachutes and weight-shift control trikes, EAA has added an additional two companies—PM Aviation, one of the world’s largest ultralight aircraft manufacturers, and Hughes Aero Corporation, manufacturer of PREDATOR brand personalized powered parachutes—to its already expansive roster.

"Affordability is our number one goal in addition to making sure each person receives the right coverage," said Bob Mackey of EAA’s Aircraft Insurance Plan. "Aviation insurance is largely unregulated, and as such, a cookie-cutter approach simply doesn’t work. The EAA Aircraft Insurance Plan tailors coverage to each pilot and his or her aircraft, ensuring each person receives the best coverage possible."

The EAA Aircraft Insurance Plan has numerous exclusive EAA member benefits. Key features of the plan include:

  • Coverage for sport pilots and light-sport aircraft

  • First-flight coverage for new homebuilt airplanes

  • $50,000 aircraft hangar and hangar contents liability coverage

  • Coverage for use of non-owned aircraft, including homebuilt and light-sport aircraft

  • No "sneaky" exclusions (no family restriction and no "per-person" sub-limit)

  • After-the-sale liability coverage for up to one year

For more information on this exclusive insurance coverage available only for EAA members, contact EAA’s Aircraft Insurance Plan at 866-647-4EAA (4322), or visit the EAA Welcome Center, Homebuilders Headquarters, or the Falcon Insurance Agency exhibit area and receive a free EAA baseball cap when you submit a insurance quote request at www.EAAInsurance.org.
