CFIs: Protect yourself and your livelihood
As a CFI you can be held liable for incidents of your students, even if you weren’t on board the aircraft at the time. This startling fact makes having the right insurance policy a necessity.
The AOPA Insurance Agency understands that your needs as a CFI are unique and that without the right policy you could be putting your livelihood on the line. That’s why when you get your CFI non-owned policy through the AOPA Insurance Agency you can rest assured that you are personally protected during flight instruction. And unlike many other policies that have tricky sub-limits that can limit coverage for your spouse, children, and other family members, a CFI liability non-owned policy through the AOPA Insurance Agency offers family coverage without sub-limits.
You’ll even be provided with defense coverage (legal fees) should the need arise. Plus, your coverage is based on when the claim is made, not when the incident occurred, so your policy will cover you for any claims made during the policy period, even if the incident happened prior to your coverage.
The AOPA Insurance Agency can also put money in back in your pocket by offering a 5-percent AOPA member discount and a 10-percent discount at renewal if you have maintained a good flying record and have had no claims.
When it comes to your livelihood don’t take chances. Contact the AOPA Insurance Agency for your free quote at 800/622-AOPA or go online.
As with all AOPA-endorsed products, a portion of the revenue generated is returned to AOPA and reinvested to fund the association’s efforts to maintain the freedom, safety, and affordability of general aviation.
