We can also handle "fractional" operations and managed aircraft fleets.

Environmental or pollution liability encompasses past or ongoing activities, including manufacturer use, release, or threatened release of a substance that can adversely affect the environment and/or human health. The environmental exposure for aviation operators and service providers is often associated with the storage, transportation, and application of chemicals and fuel.

With access to many insurance markets that provide environmental and pollution liability insurance for the aviation industry, we can deliver the most comprehensive coverage at competitive premiums.

Military and government contractors supporting aviation operations face unique exposures both nationally and internationally.

Pleasure and business aircraft insurance covers exposures for non-professional and non-commercial aircraft. This includes owner-flown, general aviation aircraft operated for pleasure. It generally also includes incidental business use, but not for hire or compensation. Policy forms and claims service for this type of insurance can vary from one insurance carrier to the next.

While not every risk can be removed, most risks can be managed to reduce the likelihood of an accident or to lessen the severity. The result is greater resilience and better bottom-line performance. When you operate safer, you're also a better risk to insurance carriers, and that can lead to better coverage costs.
