EAA Insurance Solutions: Warm Weather Flying in Powered Parachutes and Trikes
By Bob Mackey, Senior Vice President, EAA Insurance Solutions Administered by Falcon Insurance Agency, Inc.
June 25, 2015 - Everyone enjoys warm-weather flying, especially in an open cockpit airplane. Better still, in a powered parachute or trike. There’s nothing like flying out in the open. But one of the problems with flying a powered parachute or trike is insurance: Where can you get aircraft insurance with both liability (including passenger) coverage as well as physical damage?
Further, where can you get aircraft insurance with a United States-based aviation insurance company, not one from abroad that may or may not be there when you need it? If you are an EAA member, EAA Insurance Solutions administered by Falcon Insurance Agency has a perfect solution: the EAA Powered Parachute & Weight-Shift Control Trike Insurance Plan.
It provides both liability insurance, (including coverage for passengers), and physical damage insurance and is available for student pilots through airline pilots. Coverage includes personal use, flight instruction, rental, sales demonstration, and discovery flights, and can also be customized based on individual needs.
If you fly a powered parachute or trike and you can’t find aircraft insurance then you need to check out the EAA Powered Parachute & WSC Trike Insurance Plan. You can request a free quote online or call 866-647-4322 to talk directly to a professional with EAA Insurance Solutions administered by Falcon Insurance Agency.
