10 Things to Know about AOPA Insurance10 Things to Know about AOPA Insurance

Unless you have AOPA Insurance, there’s probably a lot you don’t know about what we do for our fellow pilots and customers.

1.We have access to the same carriers as other brokers, but with AOPA, your premium supports general aviation! Unlike other agencies, at AOPA Insurance, your money gets reinvested in supporting general aviation advocacy. How many insurance brokers can claim they support a bigger picture?

2.Relationships with more than a dozen A rated insurance companies that provide aviation insurance means better, more customized quotes – just for you.

3.The more you fly, the more experienced you are, with fewer accidents, the lower your insurance rate – sometimes by as much as 10%.

4.Unparalleled customer service is what we do. AOPA insurance specialists will help you wade through the insurance jargon, to ensure you don’t miss the small print. And, if you’re in an accident or have a claim, you make one call – to us – we take care of the rest.

5.Complete certain AOPA Air Safety Institute programs every six months and you can earn accident forgiveness, waive deductibles, and if you have to file a claim, it can prevent a rate increase when you renew.

6.You don’t need to be a member of AOPA to get insurance through AOPA (but many insurers offer an additional discount if you are!).

7.Because we are pilots and our expertise is with aviation insurance, we have the unique ability to match the right underwriter, pilot and aircraft. We also know what coverage is available at no extra premium depending on the options you need; like hand held avionics and medical payments, for example.

8.Did you know if you currently have coverage on an aircraft through a different broker, your insurance company will only provide a renewal quote to the current broker? By signing a simple Broker of Record change letter, you can give us permission to get a quote from your current company.

9.We protect renters too. An owner’s insurance company does not protect a pilot renting an aircraft. A renter’s policy through AOPA Insurance provides comprehensive coverage and provides personal legal defense against lawsuits.

10.We insure lots of things! There are very few aircraft that we cannot insure, from cub to experimental, from jet to helicopter, flying clubs and hangars – we have you covered.
We also offer life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment, travel assistance, and disability insurance for loss of medical for professional pilots. Plus, a NEW Home and auto insurance program will be coming soon!

No matter what you fly or for what reason, AOPA Insurance has the right policy for you. Whether you own or rent, we have you covered.
