Ron Cuff is proud to be associated with a program called Flights Above Addiction, which uses his 2000 Cessna 182 to “inform communities about teen addiction risk to stop addiction where it starts … before it starts.” As a former Naval aviator, Cuff landed aboard seven carriers, with 120 traps, and has 4,000 hours of flight time.

When it came time to choose insurance for his 182, Cuff selected AOPA for its “superior service and fair pricing.” In fact, said Cuff, “My aircraft insurance with AOPA costs less than my auto policy.” Cuff goes one step further saying he would “recommend anything AOPA to any pilot.”

Along with colleague Janet Rowse, Cuff is firmly dedicated to Flights Above Addiction and SafeLaunch. He said, “Young people interested in a career in aviation cannot risk exposure to the disease of addiction. Currently, by my analysis, we are losing about 25 percent of graduating high school seniors to addiction. It might explain the high youth unemployment rate.” Read more about SafeLaunch here.

No matter what you fly or for what reason, AOPA Insurance has the right policy for you. Don’t forget: You may qualify for a 5-percent discount just for being an AOPA member.
