Insurance woes stop carburetor manufacturer

By AOPA ePublishing staff

Claiming a total inability to find product liability insurance, the carburetor arm of Precision Airmotive announced on Nov. 1 that it was suspending carburetor and carburetor parts shipments while it reviews the company's options.

The Marysville, Wash., company builds certified carburetors for the majority of light aircraft. A company spokesman said they are working with manufacturers to find a resolution, but right now there isn't a clear option.

The company will be providing updates as the issue transpires.
