Overcast skies did not subdue the excited pilots and exhibitors at the Midwest Sport Aviation Expo in Mt. Vernon, Illinois last weekend. As in years past, this free event welcomed aviation enthusiasts from around the nation to discover the latest the sport aviation industry has to offer. To Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) agent, Gregg Ellsworth, the Sling aircraft created the biggest draw.

Granted, Gregg’s opinion may be a bit biased as he quickly found himself strapped inside the Sling, enjoying the fresh breeze with the canopy pulled back, taxiing towards the runway. With the low ceiling, Gregg and instructor Andy Enos from Lapeer Flight Training in Lapeer MI, leveled off at 2,000 feet. Despite a chop in the air, Gregg performed steep turns and other maneuvers, finding the Sling to be sporty but stable and easy to fly.

“The Sling is an easy and simple aircraft to learn to fly in while still having great technological features such as the glass panel,” Gregg said after the flight. He added, “the view can’t be beat!”

With access to all the aviation insurance markets, AIR is able to obtain the lowest available rates without compromising coverage.

Looking Back on U.S. Sport Aviation Expo 2015

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

The cloudy days did not conceal the shine in the eyes of vendors, manufacturers, dealers and pilots at the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida last week. Aircraft ranged from Cub Crafters and Legend Cub to the return of Paradise Aircraft and the introduction of the new Groppo Avio Trail. All aspects of light sport aviation were represented at this unique expo.

The mood at the Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) booth was upbeat and positive as we saw an increase in attendance. Numerous pilots were taking advantage of light sport rules and returning to aviation after a long hiatus. Renter pilots were excited to find they could instantly purchase insurance for non-owned light sport aircraft on our website. And a large number of pilots also stopped by to ask questions about amphibious light sport insurance for airplanes like the Searey.

Light sport insurance quote requests included Sonex, Bristell, Tecnam, Evektor, Flight Design, Zenith, Czech Sport and Jabiru aircraft. This proves that enthusiasm for this relatively new aircraft category is still fresh; with many pilots stating the affordability of these aircraft and no need for an aviation medical as reasons why they chose light sport.

New and prospective light sport builders stopped by the AIR booth as well. We offer a builders and restorers insurance program, designed to protect the aircraft during the building or restoring stage regardless of pilot experience and qualifications. Customized with your needs in mind, this policy offers flexible liability and hull coverage options.
