Avemco® Brings Safety Education Tour to AirVenture

AvemcoAvemco Insurance Company will be presenting several educational sessions open to all pilots and aircraft owners before and during EAA’s AirVenture Oshkosh 2013.

On his way to Oshkosh on July 28, Avemco’s Vice President of Underwriting Mike Adams will address the Gateway to Oshkosh Annual Convention and Fly-in held in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.  He’ll offer insights on safety issues and important insurance information for the attendees.  The event is hosted by the Cessna Owner Organization and the Piper Owner Society.

On opening day of AirVenture, July 29, Adams will team with Avemco’s Vice President of Sales, Marci Veronie for their popular discussion of “Top Ten Aviation Insurance Myths.” This forum will cover the most pervasive myths that often keep pilots from getting the right coverage. Attendees will learn to separate fact from fiction regarding insuring aircraft for the right value.  Veronie and Adams will share how aviation insurance underwriting offers an intriguing perspective on accident prevention through information gleaned from analyzing data unique to insurance.  The forum will be held at the AirVenture Forums Pavilion 3 beginning at 1:00 pm.

As part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s educational sessions at AirVenture, Adams will present “What Kind of Pilot Runs Out of Gas?”  The topic of fuel always includes an opportunity to learn through a lively dialogue on common sense guidelines and pilot traits.  The forum will be on Monday, July 29 at 4:00pm in the FAA Aviation Safety Center on the EAA grounds.

On Wednesday, July 31, in Forum Pavilion 3, Veronie and Adams will present the popular “Tips to Avoid Accidents” forum.  They’ll share surprising findings from analysis of decades of compiled Avemco insurance loss statistic summaries for aircraft types and pilots – findings sometimes more revealing than actual NTSB records.

Information compiled from Avemco’s claims data will be offered to assist pilots with choices that might help avoid accidents and provide expertise about insurance that will benefit aircraft owners and renters.  For several years, Avemco has supported pioneering research that has uncovered the need for aviation education based on professional airmanship development in tandem with skills-based pilot training.
