AIG Aviation Inc., as the aviation underwriter for the member companies of American International Group Inc., is recognizing the improving general aviation safety record by offering significant rate reductions on a large number of GA aircraft types.
“An improved accident picture allows us to offer lower rates on many GA aircraft,” said Carson Lyons, assistant vice president for AIG Aviation. “And those aircraft where we’ve seen the best experience will see the greatest reductions in rate.”
Lyons noted that while not all aircraft will see rate reductions and certain state restrictions may apply, many GA piston aircraft owners could see savings.

Collaboration between the German government, academia, and airplane manufacturers may make future aircraft cabins more protective of pilots and passengers. The Safety Box team plans to apply auto racing technology to general aviation.
A father and his 14-year-old son were helping another pilot ferry a newly purchased aircraft from California to their home field in Virginia. The three made an overnight stop in Albuquerque before flying on to Illinois for fuel. But shortly after they parked the aircraft in Marion, Ill., they were approached by as many as 18 uniformed and non-uniformed law enforcement officers who came running toward the airplane.
