The AOPA Insurance Agency reports that insurance rates on many aircraft have fallen as much as 10 percent in recent weeks, thanks to increased competition and a solid general aviation safety record.
Two carriers have announced significant decreases in premiums on certain GA aircraft, and more insurers are expected to follow with price reductions in the near future, according to Greg Sterling, general manager of the AOPA Insurance Agency.
"We expect this downward trend to continue," Sterling said. "New carriers are entering the GA insurance market, bringing new competition. At the same time, general aviation continues to show a solid safety record. The combination of those factors is creating downward pressure on prices—great news for pilots who are concerned about the cost of flying."

The AOPA Insurance Agency is the only agency backed by AOPA. The AOPA Insurance Agency works for both members and non-members to find the best available aviation insurance coverage available.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
