Thread: Part 135 insurance

  1. #1

    Default Part 135 insurance

    Looking at starting a part 135 operation, single pilot/plane.

    Starting with cessna 172. Does anyone know what the average cost for 1500,000/100,000 liability insurance is?

    Any 135 operators on this forum?

    Thanks

    I heard the boss saying we pay about $17,000/yr for a c-207 but Im not sure about the c-172. If I find out I will let you know. This is for multiple pilots / aircraft so it might be more or less than a single pilot/plane gig. I dont know our insured $$ but I know you need 2,500 hrs before they let you take it "off airport"

    Call Dean Eichholtz at Falcon Avaiation Insurance in Soldotna. Tell him what you are thinking about doing, how many hours you have and all that stuff.
    He is a great guy to work with. Tell him Alex told you to give him a call.

    I submitted my single pilot cert in May 2006, and im still waiting. This spring, i happen to call and ask "what place am it?" and the lady replied im #2. I still have yet to even begin the process and ready to contact our senators again for assistance.

    I looked into starting the application process a couple of weeks ago. Just looking at a single pilot / aircraft. When I went to our local FSDO I had 3 different people reassure me that it wouldnt take more than a couple of months depending on how fast I got paper work back to them and how fast we could get the plane through inspection.

    I also asked about buying a lower 48 company with a plane/cert and bringing it up. They said piece of cake.

    I'm in Wasilla. Called the FAA today, lady said average time is 600 days after you submit you packet untill they are ready for you, then another 300 days after that before check ride. Very discouraging to hear.

    Anyone that has recently gone through this process, I would greatly appricate and help / advice. Please PM

    Thanks,
    Israel

    Because they get a tax payer supplied pay check regardless if they leave the office or not. Just wait until they are doing your family medical...

    Do you know how to make a small fortune in aviation? If you can't answer this question correctly you don't need to worry about insurance.

    Default 40 years and still amazed

    Been flying 40 years and I'm still amazed at the FAA. They should have been shut down a long time ago and started over again with new blood that want to do the job.

    That is so wrong. What could they be doing that would take 2 1/2 years other than nothing. I wonder how long #1 has been waiting.
