Falcon Insurance Gets Friendly With Smaller Birds
As of yesterday, pilots wanting to fly airplanes they don't own have access to insurance coverage through EAA Aircraft Insurance. The plan, a venture of EAA, Falcon Insurance Agency and Global Aerospace, is called the EAA Non-Owned Insurance Plan. "EAA is committed to protecting the freedom of flight for its members, and the right insurance coverage is a part of that," said EAA President Tom Poberezny. The new offering includes liability insurance of $1,000 to $100,000 for operations and damage to non-owned birds as well as medical coverage of up to $100,000 per person. Planes in both the Standard Category and Experimental Amateur-Built category, as well as the new Light Sport Aircraft, are covered. At the present, the insurance is only available in the U.S.
