I got a policy in July through London Aviation Underwriters (using AOPA’s brokerage service). I am a very low time pilot (under 200 hours) and paid about $7500 (ouch!). This was for an SR22 B configuration.
We just got a quote for $6200 from an obscure insurance company thru our broker. USAIG, AIG wouldn’t insure the SR22. We are high time, IFR, and flight instructors. What are recent 22 drivers getting for quotes and what companies. Picking up N122CG Oct 11!
O.K.I CAN NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE. Just to start off I am a AOPA asn vol. for my local airport. (sjc). I love aopa but as far as a insurance service, having owned 3 new planes Dave and I have always beat there rates and coverages by a min of 30%. I think a good aircraft insurance broker is the most important part of ownership. The next important part of picking a broker is 1. do they know what a Cirrus is and can do. 2. how many Cirrus have they placed and insured. (do they know the market). I just dug out all the qoutes for our sr22 they are as follows. aopa $7340.00, Avemco $6350.00, Chris Zannete $4525.00. all coverages are for 1mill/100k/seat. pilots times are 250hours/no ifr and 750hours/ifr. As you can guess the prem are based on the low time pilot.
I am not trying to puch Chris or anyone else, my point is find a broker that can shop 6-8 underwriters not aopa that shops 3. I hope this save some of you some money!..Tailwinds always,Ed
