As the nation gears up for another hurricane season, it's not too soon to think about your hurricane contingency plan.
If you live in a hurricane-prone area, develop a plan that will allow you to relocate your airplane outside of a hurricane's predicted path. Need some ideas for your aircraft relocation plan? Take a look at AOPA's hurricane subject report, which includes articles from AOPA Pilot and AOPA Flight Training.
Now is also the time for you to review your aircraft insurance policy to see whether it covers any of the costs of relocating your aircraft. Some carriers, including the AOPA Insurance Agency, cover the cost of hiring an evacuation pilot and relocating and storing an aircraft.
