Frederick, MD – Insurance underwriter Starr Aviation has signed on as a supporter of the AOPA Insurance Agency’s Accident Forgiveness and Deductible Waiver Enhancement program. The program both promotes and rewards safe flying by pilots who demonstrate their continuing commitment to aviation safety education.

"The best way to control insurance costs is to reduce the number of accidents," said Janet Bressler, president of the AOPA Insurance Agency. "The Accident Forgiveness program gives pilots added incentive to continually improve their safety knowledge and skills."

Under the program, Starr Aviation will waive the deductible, up to $500, provided the pilot involved has completed an approved training event by a recognized provider, such as an AOPA Air Safety Foundation online course or in-person safety seminar, in the 6 months preceding the occurrence or aircraft accident, or has completed any phase of the FAA Wings program in the 12 months preceding an occurrence or aircraft accident.

Starr Aviation becomes the fourth underwriter for the AOPA Insurance Agency to offer accident forgiveness.
