At Sutton James, aviation insurance is all we do. We draw upon our experience as former aviation underwriters, pilots, and over 20 years of brokerage experience to negotiate the best insurance deals for our customers.

Commercial Aviation Insurance

If you are in the business of aviation, whether you are an aircraft repair and service, a municipal airport, or other aviation service business, we can put a program together for you.

Aviation Liability and Property Insurance

Fixed Base Operators
FBO’s are responsible for the safekeeping of expensive aircraft. They also have exposure for the products they sell and for the things that happen on their premises. We have the experience to put together an insurance program that not only meets the broad exposure you face, but at the most competitive price possible. We can also take care of coverage for things like your crew cars, refuelers and other ground service equipment, even insurance for your buildings.

General Aviation Repair Stations
Aircraft repair shops have their own unique insurance exposures, especially now that the General Aviation Revitalization Act (GARA) had relieved manufacturers from liability arising out of older aircraft, which make up the vast majority of the fleet. Due to the cost and availability of higher limits of liability for aircraft owners, shops have more exposure than ever. Contact us today and we can discuss your needs and make sure you are properly covered.

Hangar Owners and Condo Associations
Whether you own or lease a single hangar, or represent a condo group, we can get you insurance that will cover the liability of storing other people’s expensive airplanes, slip and fall claims, and anything else that may happen on your premises.

We’ve also got you covered if you are an:

  • Airport Authority and Municipality
  • Aircraft Dealer
  • Residential Airpark and Private Airport
  • Air Show and Fly-in
  • Helipad

Excess Liability

At Sutton James, we are aware that many of our clients have the need for more protection than underwriters are willing to provide. That’s why we offer additional liability coverage for our customers who require it. If you need a higher limit than you have now, contact us and we can assist you!

Other Commercial Aviation Insurance

Most businesses have insurance packages that are ready made and include many of the various coverage required in today’s insurance market place. There are no “ready made” insurance packages for specialty businesses such as aviation. Your type of risk requires a bit of imagination, a great understanding of the insurance industry, and knowledge of your specific business.
