Accident Forgiveness – new air safety foundation courses qualify and Starr Aviation joins the program
Conventional wisdom says that once you’ve had an accident, your premium is sure to go up. Not so with AOPA Insurance Agency if you participate in its Accident Forgiveness and Deductible Waiver Enhancement Program with a participating insurance company, a group which now includes Starr Aviation.
Taking part is easier than you would imagine. There are several convenient safety education options: online courses, webinars, live safety seminars and now safety quizzes. In the event that you have an accident, AOPA Insurance Agency’s participating underwriters will not raise your insurance premium because of your mishap. What’s more, the Accident Forgiveness program waives part of your deductible. How easy is that?
Which course you take is your call – choose from dozens of courses covering topics such as aviation decision making, aging aircraft, mountain flying, GPS and a variety of courses on weather. A complete list is on the Accident Forgiveness page. After you take the course, you will get a completion certificate to download as proof you’ve taken the course.
If online study isn’t your thing, you can attend a live event, again once every six months, that is sponsored by the Air Safety Foundation. You register at the event for the training and you are later mailed an attendance certificate for your records. AOPA typically alerts members via email within a 65-mile radius of a live event as well as planning events around major aviation shows and conventions. Oshkosh bound? Check out the live events planned there.
However you obtain your safety education– through an online course, a live safety seminar or by taking quizzes – AOPA Insurance Agency’s Accident Forgiveness program is a simple way to save yourself big money.
Those participating insurance companies are Chartis Aerospace Insurance Services, Phoenix Aviation Managers, Inc., Starr Aviation Agency, Inc. and United States Aircraft Insurance Group (USAIG), Inc.
