Avemco Insurance Company Vice Presidents, Marci Veronie and Michael Adams will be co-presenting two safety education forums as part of the educational tracks provided during the Sun n’ Fun Fly-In at Lakeland, Florida, April 9-14, 2013.
Their first forum, “Top Ten Aviation Insurance Myths” will be on Tuesday April 9 at 1:00pm in the CFAA Bldg, Room 4. Attendees will discover the most pervasive myths that often keep pilots from getting the appropriate coverage for their GA aircraft and flying activities. Attendees will also learn to separate fact from fiction regarding insuring their aircraft, the “hidden treasure” of liability coverage, and the risks of flying a rented or borrowed aircraft.
Veronie and Adams will then present “Traits of Superior Pilots-An Insurance Perspective,” to be held on Wednesday April 10 at 11:00am in the CFAA Bldg, Room 7. During this forum, based on actual Avemco insurance claims data and loss prevention research, Mike and Marci will present findings on why some pilots are less likely to have accidents and what all pilots can learn about the traits of superior pilots.
Adams will also present an FAA forum “Unique Safety Perspectives: Findings from Avemco’s Files” on Tuesday, April 9 at 10:00am in the FAA Building. Many mishaps are reported to the NTSB. Many aren’t. Mike will provide a fascinating peek into information gleaned from the files of Avemco Insurance Company. He’ll shed light on the most common causes of GA accidents across the country and perhaps assist attendees from becoming a statistic.
