The twin engine piston airplane is normally a move up from a single engine piston airplane. Having a second engine can give a safety and security that many pilots’ require.
Insuring the twin engine piston airplane adds additional risk not usually required in single engine piston airplanes. While the cost of the airplane is a consideration, the experience of the pilot and the complexity of the airplane is a greater factor when the insurance underwriter evaluates the risk.
Often initial training in the make and model to be flown will be required, with recurrent training to be accomplished at a specified time interval.
When one of our AvQuest Insurance Service professionals is working with a client to secure insurance on their airplane, all cost are considered. Training, and recurrent training can be costly and must be considered in the total cost of insurance. In some cases the lower cost policy may be the most expensive when the training cost are added in.
