4 Factors to Consider When Hiring an Aviation Insurance Broker

Choosing the right aviation insurance policy may seem like a daunting task. There are many factors to take into consideration. That’s why it’s in your best interest to hire a professional aviation insurance broker and finding the right person who will work on your behalf to produce the best possible coverage.

Their end goal is to create a lasting relationship by providing excellent service and staying current on insurance demands and changes. 

Consider these 4 factors when hiring an aviation insurance broker, especially for private aircraft insurance.


Experience is a fundamental factor in deciding who to hire as an Aviation Insurance Broker. This is a very specialized field and hiring a specialist is a must. The aviation marketplace is ever-changing and aviation insurance specialists are following it on a daily basis. They’re knowledge of the industry and marketplace positions you with the best possible policy to meet your operational needs. 

An experienced aviation insurance broker has access to markets that your local insurance agent probably doesn’t have access to. This access gives you the products you need. You don’t ever want to be in a situation where you are not covered, which is why working with an experienced aviation insurance broker is at the top of our list.


When you go to dinner at a high-end restaurant, you expect excellent service. You are paying a price to have an experience unlike any other. The expectations should be the same when it comes to your aviation insurance broker. You should feel valued and in return you should be grateful for their efforts and work. 

A broker should be willing and able to do the work no matter the time and return. From negotiating terms on your behalf to assisting with claims or questions about your policy, you need a trusted broker who does the work. 

This is a service industry and building relationships is all part of the process.


Your aviation insurance broker is a trusted advisor. They should be able to explain the underwriting process actions taken by the insurance companies to develop rates as well as explain coverage options.

Will they handle your Workers Compensation as well as the Liability and do they have markets for all your risk exposures?


Visit their website to get an idea of who they are and what services they provide. Do they make getting a quote easy either by filling out a form online or making a phone call?

You want a professional and a professional will provide insight through their digital presence.
