Picture Great Coverage with AIR’s Aerial Photography Insurance

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

The sky provides a unique view that you cannot find just anywhere. Climb to the branch of the tallest tree or sit upon the roof of the highest building and your photograph still cannot quite grasp that aerial perspective. This vantage point is an asset to many businesses. Construction companies will show aerial pictures of their work to investors and environmental organizations may be interested in tracking changing shorelines over time. Aerial photography companies are vital to creating this special look.

To sufficiently protect commercial aerial photo operations, more than just your typical aircraft insurance policy may be needed. Depending on the number of hours flown for aerial photography annually, this protection could be endorsed on your current aircraft policy, or a new commercial policy for this use may have to be started. A well-protected aerial photography business starts with just one call to Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR).  The insurance experts at AIR are also pilots who understand the importance of a cost efficient, yet effective policy to cover your business.

AIR represents all of the major insurance markets and offers the broadest package of protection and the best available rates.

TBM Aircraft Insurance

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

TBMDescribed by Flying Magazine as a jet with a prop, the Daher-Socata TBM 700, 850 and 900 aircraft deliver jet-like speeds on a more economical budget. The six to eight seat, pressurized turboprop aircraft was first introduced in 1990 and has been going strong ever since. With a service ceiling of 31,000 feet a TBM can soar with the “big dogs” over hazardous weather and quickly to a destination at 330 knots true airspeed. Newer models are loaded with the latest glass cockpit technology and creature comforts such as air conditioning, TBM aircraft will make just about any pilot drool.

TBM 700AThe TBM 700 started it all, cruising at 300 knots true on a Pratt & Whitney PT6A-64 engine. The TBM 700B and TBM 700C followed with increased maximum weight, air conditioning, and other available add-ons.

TBM 850With an extra 25 knots at cruise altitude, the TBM 850 brought pilots more speed, without altering what made the 700 a success. The TBM 850 G1000 was the first TBM to be equipped with the G1000 glass cockpit system and the Elite model offered increased cargo and forward facing passenger seating.

TBM 900 – To date, 47 TBMs have been ordered in 2014. Dubbed the “ultimate personal aircraft” the TBM 900 boasts a 1,730 nautical mile range, can hit 31,000ft in just 18 minutes, and can land on 2,100’ grass runways; all without compromising the luxuries. Besides the 330 knot maximum cruise speed, other improvements include composite winglets, a five blade propeller, automated pressurization control and Garmin V14 software.

Aviation Event Insurance

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

When was the first time you fell in love with aviation? For many, it’s on a warm summer day, in the middle of the crowd with the smell of popcorn in the air. There’s an announcer over the loudspeaker and everyone is looking up at the sky and listening to the hum of an airplane. You are at your hometown airport. It’s an airshow.

Each year, airshows draw in 11-13 million spectators to airports across the United States. Attracted by thrilling military formation teams and daring individual aerobatic performers, airshows bring in needed revenue to local airports and are great advertising for small towns and big cities. Often, airport general liability policies exclude coverage for fly-ins and air shows. Whether running a small fly-in event to a large airshow such as EAA AirVenture, it is important that the show host is properly protected.

To get started, there are a few things the agent will need to know:

  • Event dates
  • Rain date (if applicable)
  • Any additional insureds
  • Estimate total attendance
  • Planned crowd control

Airshow insurance coverages include:

  • Bodily injury & property damage
  • Medical payments

With options to protect:

  • Personal/advertising injury
  • Volunteer accident
  • Food & Beverage
  • Non-owned vehicle or aircraft

Don’t let liability worries top you from bringing a great fly-in or airshow to your community. The insurance experts and pilots at Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) will guide you through the details of insuring your aviation event. To prepare for your aviation event, please contact Aviation Insurance Resources by calling 877-247-7767~
