Aviation Insurance: Times Have Changed


For those of you who have owned airplanes or have been in the general aviation industry for the past 15 years or more, you saw insurance premium rates skyrocket after the events of September 11, 2001. By 2006, insurance carriers built up significant reserves and profits. As a result of those positive financial returns, the aviation insurance market grew from 8 underwriting companies to approximately 19. As capacity increased, prices dropped and the softening cycle continually for more than a decade. As a result, a year ago, rates on many aircraft and general aviation risks were one third of what they were in 2006. In addition to lower rates, aircraft policies for owner-flown aircraft, for example, have been broader than ever before and include coverages that were once reserved for only the best, professionally flown aircraft risks. It’s been a classic supply vs. demand model. The soft aviation insurance market has been great for the consumer!
