Aviation insurer AIG Aviation has announced that, effective immediately, it will increase the amount of its hurricane relocation coverage, from $500 to $1,000, for qualifying policyholders.
“We commend AIG Aviation not only for improving this important coverage, but for extending the benefit to all current policyholders—not just new business,” said Greg Sterling, AOPA executive vice president of non-dues revenue.
The decision to increase coverage was made in recognition of the increased cost of fuel and other expenses owners face.
“We understand that our policyholders’ cost of protecting their aircraft have gone up; therefore, increasing this protective coverage was simply the right thing to do,” said Will Lovett, president of AIG Aviation, North America.
As part of most AIG Aviation light aircraft insurance policies, hurricane relocation coverage helps owners offset the cost of relocating their aircraft out of an area under the threat of a hurricane.

Beringer Wheels and Brakes announced the availability of several types of aircraft wheels on July 29 at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and said a new anti-groundloop tailwheel design is forthcoming.
The widespread presence of angle-of-attack indicators in general aviation aircraft could reduce fatal loss-of-control accidents caused by inadvertent stalls, said the FAA.
Flight Design says production and testing of its four-seat C4 is on target despite the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
