Great news for AOPA members in flying clubs
“The AOPA Insurance Agency has policies for pilots who own their airplanes and also for those who rent, but I belong to a flying club. What can you do for me?”
We put the power of the AOPA Insurance Agency (AOPAIA) to work for you and your club. For years, flying clubs found it difficult to obtain reasonable insurance. AOPAIA recognized this gap in available coverage and responded. By working closely with major “A”-rated insurance companies, we can now offer you insurance products especially designed to meet the unique needs of today’s flying club.
Comprehensive coverage for high-performance, complex aircraft and use of airport facilities
Many insurance companies will insure your club’s four-place, fixed-gear, single-engine aircraft, but they give you the cold shoulder when it comes to your higher performance or complex aircraft. At AOPA, we think that insurance should be tailored to fit the needs of your club’s membership, not the other way around. So we assist you with your club’s entire fleet—and work with you to enable your pilots to transition safely to higher performance aircraft. Plus, we can provide you with aviation general liability policies to cover your club’s use of airport facilities.
Great rates for clubs with safety programs and automated scheduling/dispatching systems
We know that the best flying clubs work hard to ensure that their operations are safe, and we make sure you get credit for these efforts. Likewise, if you use an automated scheduling system that monitors pilot qualifications and controls aircraft dispatch accordingly, you’ll be recognized for your investment in safety there as well.
We think AOPA membership is a great benefit to pilots and hope you do, too. One benefit your flying club can count on is the AOPA Member Discount. If all members of your flying club are also AOPA members, you’ll earn an additional 5-percent premium credit.
AOPA members who belong to flying clubs asked for better aviation insurance coverage, and AOPAIA listened and delivered. It’s the kind of responsive “member” quality service you and your club can expect from the only insurance agency trusted to carry the AOPA name. Just ask your club’s insurance officer to contact the AOPA Insurance Agency to find out how we can help you with your flying club’s aircraft insurance needs. Call 800/622-AOPA (2672) or go online.
