When you think about Sporty’s Pilot Shop, you probably don’t think about insurance, but for a year now, Precision Approach aircraft insurance has been available through Sporty’s, part of its expanding lineup of services it offers in addition to its pilot gear business. The insurance, available for both owners and renters, offers coverage for many GA planes—including LSAs and experimentals—and has some nice extras like covering stolen pilot supplies and search and rescue expenses.
Recently, Precision Approach added options for insuring drones as well. The online application process for Precision’s Hull and Liability Insurance for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is the same as the one for manned aircraft. As part of the policy purchase, the insurance company provides a Standard Operating Procedure document produced by the Unmanned Safety Institute, an Introductory Guide to Emergency Response, and a Best Practice Guide to Prevent Against Claims of Invasion of Privacy.
Precision Approach Insurance is offered through The Loomis Company and underwritten by Global Aerospace. The company offers free online quotes and online purchase with, in many cases, the option to immediately download the purchased policy. Sporty’s will throw in a $25 gift card to Sporty’s Pilot Shop for customers who purchase the insurance through the Sporty’s website.
