ActivePILOT requires all members interested in renting its fleet to acquire Aircraft Renters Insurance before checking out an airplane. Aircraft renters’ insurance policies are primarily designed to protect you from liability damages incurred with the added risks of flying aircraft that you don’t own. It is an annual policy designed to protect you when flying aircraft that you have either rented or borrowed. Also known as a non-owned aircraft insurance policy, and typically written as a 1-year, annual insurance policy.

Here are a few prominent insurance companies offering the best coverage and price that ActivePILOT accepts:

  • BWI Aircraft Renters Insurance
  • AOPA Aircraft Renters Insurance
  • AVEMCO Aircraft Renters Insurance

Fuel purchased elsewhere will be reimbursed at the rate paid or current at KVNY, whichever is less.
