“As a corporate pilot and longtime
customer of Advantage Aviation Insurance, it is without hesitation to recommend
them to anyone looking for aviation insurance. Jim took the time to analyze our
aircraft policy and was able to make some excellent recommendations. Our
insurance costs were greatly reduced and we now have better coverage. It is
refreshing to deal with an individual who follows up on any question and
provides outstanding service.” D. Hicks - Corporate Pilot
was introduced to Jim by another pilot at a pilot lounge in
NC why we were waiting for my passengers to finish their meetings. I contacted
Jim when we got back home and moved both my airplane insurance over to him. I
found him to have great rates and service on MU 2 at the times when a lot of
companies declined to offer coverages. I later bought a helicopter that was not
easy to insure and he found coverage at a competitive rate. I would recommend Advantage Aviation Insurance to anyone.
