Look Before You Leap: Are You and Your Aircraft Insurable?

Bob Mackey

You’ve found an aircraft or project that completely fits your mission. It’s unique, very capable and you like it! The problem: the insurance company requires 10 hours dual in make and model with a CFI and there isn’t a practical way to do that. Owning an airplane, whether you build it, restore it, or buy it, can be one of the high points in any aviator’s life; however, the last thing you expect to learn when you are obtaining insurance is that you and/or your aircraft are uninsurable, the price of insurance is excessive, or the check-out requirements are nearly impossible. EAA’s mission is to grow participation in aviation and EAA works with Falcon Insurance Agency, Inc., to make sure members can get the right insurance at the best price…including those times when it seems impossible to do so. In this webinar Bob Mackey, senior vice president with Falcon Insurance Agency, Inc., will discuss ways EAA members can investigate the cost and requirements for aircraft insurance before they build or buy an airplane.

Maintenance "By The Book"?
Qualifies for FAA Wings and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

 

Mechanics are taught that when they work on an aircraft, they must always follow the methods, techniques and practices prescribed by the manufacturer in the relevant maintenance manual or instructions for continued airworthiness. But does the FAA require mechanics to always do things "by the book"? Not exactly. The regulations give mechanics more latitude than that. Mike Busch examines the relevant FARs and FAA orders to uncover what the regulations really say and mean.

Flying Aircraft You Don't Own

Bob Mackey

 

How many times have you rented a car, borrowed a friend’s car, or allowed a friend to use your car? We don’t spend much time thinking about insurance at times like these. Perhaps this is why pilots — from student to commercial — spend very little time thinking about insurance when they fly an aircraft they don’t own, but they should! Insurance companies are fairly aggressive when it comes to recovering money they pay for a claim, and this incudes going after pilots who rent or borrow aircraft. EAA and Falcon Insurance Agency are committed to providing the best options available for EAA members who fly aircraft they do not own. The EAA Non-Owned Aircraft Insurance Plan can provide insurance protection for pilots, from student to commercial, and aircraft including single-engine standard category, seaplanes, multi-engine, gliders and sailplanes, gyrocopters and helicopters, powered parachutes, WSC Trikes, and experimental and light-sport aircraft. This webinar will touch on all aspects of the risk and solutions for EAA members who fly aircraft they do not own.
