I’ve been trying to find a “reasonable” cost insurance for a new or late model SR22 with TKS. I’m C182T owner and pay $3,200/yr based on my Private-IFR 500 hours of experience. The lowest I’ve been able to find for a newer SR22 is $9,400, and the $1,000,000 “smooth” coverage seems out of the question.
The “story” I get from the insurance folks is that the SR22 currently has a bad risk record so rates are high.
It’s really my next plane of choice, but the insurance costs are really a turnoff.
Any tips or techniques to acquire insurance at a rate more in the hull rate range of the C182 would be greatly appreciated.
