Because of the high cost of aviation insurance, some pilots consider self-insuring their plane. The latest update to this guide explains why carrying full insurance will give the owner peace of mind about liability for themselves and their passengers as well as any repairs that might be needed to the airplane.

This step-by-step guide provides the five most important airplane insurance tips that new aircraft owners need to consider. It advises potential airplane owners to get in touch with a professional aviation insurance broker early in the shopping process, preferably before they have signed anything.

The guide adds that a broker can recommend which insurance company fits their client based on the coverages offered and the types of insurance they specialize in. The right broker will advocate for their client after completely evaluating the client’s skill and experience, as well as the aircraft make and model.

Insurance companies may have different rate levels based on the pilot’s training and the type of aircraft. The broker can explain these complexities and the optional add-ons that can protect the owner’s costly investment. The right policy will cover liability for bodily injury, property damage, and legal defense, and an owner may choose an add-on for hull coverage to take care of damage to the aircraft itself.
