A List at Long Last - Prescription Medications

Source: FAA Safety Briefing Jan/Feb 2020
By: Michael Berry, M.D. Federal Air Surgeon

You May Be Paying Too Much for Aircraft Insurance

The aviation insurance market is changing. Are you prepared?

For the last decade, insurance premiums have been at an all-time low due to carrier competition. Aviation underwriters were all competing for the same group of business and the way to win the account was to provide the lowest rate. With these lower rates, however, the aviation industry suffered, and costs of losses increased. As with any business, the rates had to increase in order to maintain a viable marketplace.

IFA’s Insurance Program provider is Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) - an aviation insurance broker where every agent is a licensed pilot. Their piloting experience combined with being appointed with every major aviation insurance carrier provides their customers with comfort knowing they are purchasing the broadest package of coverage at the best available rate. AIR goes the extra mile in the hardening market to provide you with the best aircraft insurance solution for you.
