It is recommended that light aircraft owners and aircraft renters purchase aviation insurance. Many fixed-based operators (FBOs) and hangar landlords require that their aircraft renters and tenants carry at minimum an aviation liability insurance policy. The limits required may vary depending on the operation of your light aircraft.

While we can handle all types of insurance from individual needs to commercial use, we are the only aviation insurance broker with a department dedicated specifically for light aircraft owners. We take pride in our aviation knowledge and relationships with the insurance carriers that specialize in this specific group.

The Gallagher Aerospace team has access to all the major aviation insurance companies to help our light aircraft clients in both the personal use aircraft and commercial aviation industry.

Light aircraft insurance coverage tailored to fit your needs

We provide aviation insurance coverage for most make and model aircraft. Even if you are an infrequent aircraft flyer, having aviation insurance coverage for your plane is essential. There are multiple aviation coverage options available from full flight, ground only and liability only. Whether flying for business or recreational use, our light aircraft insurance team is dedicated to finding coverage that will protect you, your passengers and your light aircraft — by managing your risk and providing confidence for the future.

We have access to the EAA program and the ability to get a discount from some insurance carriers if you are an AOPA member.
