Service keeps members coming back to the AOPA Insurance Agency
It sounds simple: Buy an airplane, get it insured, and fly, fly, fly. But sometimes the reality can be more complex—how much insurance should you buy, and exactly what provisions do you need? When Nina Ortega, a California pilot, ventured into aircraft ownership, she discovered that her needs weren’t the only ones she had to consider when buying aircraft insurance.
“We’ve had some challenges,” she explained. “One was with the city where the airplanes are tied down. I’ve probably been back to our insurance agent six or seven times on this, and each time she’s made the changes I want. Then we needed some special endorsements for a nonowner pilot and some student pilots. My agent has been really gracious with all that.”
Ortega, who owns two airplanes, says working with the AOPA Insurance Agency also gives her peace of mind. “They have been really patient working through the language for us, and they understand how all this works, so we know we have the coverage we need,” she said.
That kind of service, along with competitive pricing, has led Ortega to keep renewing her policy through AOPA.
