If you're not protected, it could cost you a lot

Renter’s aircraft insurance provides coverage to pilots who rent or borrow airplanes, protecting them from the enormous cost should an incident occur. Members have wondered why it’s important to get protected. Should you have even a minor incident in your rented or borrowed airplane, you could be financially obligated to repair the damages—unless you have the right coverage. Consider what the replacement costs are of some commonly damaged aircraft parts: A nosewheel could run $674 and a wingtip can cost up to $1,221. In comparison, you could purchase an AOPA renter’s insurance policy costing as little as $175 a year for a policy that includes physical damage coverage, if you are an AOPA member. A renter’s policy including aircraft physical damage coverage can provide peace of mind as you enjoy your pilot lifestyle. Or for policies without the physical damage coverage, you could purchase an AOPA renter’s insurance policy costing as little as $81 a year.
