Aircraft Insurance Outlook – June 2024

Posted By Benjamin Peterson

Published July 1, 2024

The market has gone flat – 🌊🌊🌊

  • We’re still getting a lot of calls from aircraft owners out there getting increases in premium this year. Why is that? Probably because their premium is somewhat competitive or their broker hasn’t been able to attract competition
  • Soft areas of the market: Low limits – sub $2,000,000 hull value and liability $2,000,000 is easy for all 20+ aviation insurance companies to quote.Β 
  • Flat areas of the market: Mid to High limits – $2,000,000 to $10,000,000 hull value and the number of insurance companies drops to 12.
  • Hard areas of the market: High limits – $10,000,000 to $70,000,000 hull value and the number of insurance companies realistically drops to 6
