EAA Insurance Solutions: The Difference Between Difficult and Impossible

By Bob Mackey, Senior Vice President, EAA Insurance Solutions Administered by Falcon Insurance Agency, Inc.

May 13, 2015 - In the aviation insurance community most insurance brokers will handle easy and do difficult only when they have to, however, few will try impossible.

Recently an EAA member who’s had two aircraft accidents in the past three years called EAA headquarters because he could not get aircraft insurance for a newly purchased aircraft. He was told by an insurance broker it would be impossible to get aircraft insurance because of the accidents. This is where difficult can become impossible, but not always!

The member wound up working with one of the aviation insurance professionals at EAA Insurance Solutions administered by Falcon Insurance Agency. After collecting all of the details about the previous accidents and the other underwriting details, the EAA plan broker was able to obtain a quote for aircraft insurance.

Was the quote for aircraft insurance outstanding? Well, if your definition of outstanding is “cheap,” then the answer is no. However, if your definition of outstanding is an insurance policy with satisfactory insurance limits and terms that both the member and the insurance company find reasonable, then the answer is yes.

Impossible sometimes can become difficult. It just takes an insured who understands his risk profile, an insurer who is willing to underwrite the risk with an open mind, and a knowledgeable broker who’s willing to do the necessary extra legwork. The aviation insurance professionals with EAA Insurance Solutions have the knowledge, professionalism, and determination to arrange insurance for the aircraft EAA members fly - the difficult and sometimes the impossible.

Regardless of the type of aircraft you fly and the type of flying you do, talk directly to an Aviation Insurance Professional at 866-647-4322, or to receive a free no-obligation quote for aircraft insurance visit the EAA Insurance Solutions web page. Whatever you do, make sure you have aircraft insurance that fits. With EAA Insurance Solutions you will find the right insurance at the best price!
