The Baron G58 is a high performance piston aircraft so it is easy for an unproficient or inexperienced pilot to get in trouble. Claims are typically from runway incursions, hard landings, hangar rash, and weather damage. Claims are relatively low and predictable to underwrite.
The new Baron G58 is a multi engine which increases safety right off the bat, but it’s also equipped with the Garmin G1000 NXi avionics. The NXi comes with Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) which increases situational awareness and spatial orientation especially when flying IFR or shooting instrument approaches. The main focus should just be on maintaining your proficiency to properly manage the avionics to your benefit. Insurance companies are familiar with underwriting the Baron G58 and Beechcraft/Textron as a manufacturer.
Insurance rates start around 1% of the hull value for qualified pilots and a smooth operation.
