    Default Plane insurance

    Currently I have my plane insured with Avemco, and I was wondering what other companies covers planes in Alaska. Would like to compare prices. Thanks Terry

    From what I've heard locally, including a local insurance company. Hard to beat Avemco. Of course it depends on what your needs are. There are variables involved like TT, Floats, Etc.

    Default try falcon

    Falcon insurance in Soldotna. They beat Avemco by a long shot for me. Dean and Patty. 262-5548

    Great people as well.
    Don't tell Dean I said that. He'll get a big head.

    Be aware that you can sometimes obtain insurance discounts by receiving some additional training.

    For instance, my neighbor moved here from Texas with his Cessna 210.
    His insrance jumped sky high.

    So I wrote up with a mountain flying course for him and some other new pilots.

    We did a few hous around the glaciers and mountain passes. Then we did a bunch of landings at the runways in Nanwalek, Port Graham and Seldovia, for loacl Alaskan conditions.

    We managed to get his landing distances down from 1800 ft to 550 feet in his C-210 retracable.

    I wrote it all up and sent it off to his insurance company. They then dropped 15% from his annual premium.
