New Insurance Requirement
As of January 1, 2013 we have new insurance company requirements for pilot currancy. All private pilots (or higher rating) must have logged 5 hours in the same make and model aircraft within the last 60 days or an hour checkout is required by a flight instructor. The requirements for student pilots has not changed. All flights must be under the supervision of a flight instructor.
We are working with our insurance agent to make this policy less restrictive. It is our goal to keep the cost of flying as low as possible while maintaining a safe operating environment. It is important that we adhere to the new currancy requirements to keep the insurance coverage for aircraft damage and associated loss in force. Please contact us with any questions.
