Insurance Update – Powered Parachutes And Trikes
October 23, 2008 — At the 2007 Sun 'n Fun Fly-In, the EAA Aircraft Insurance Plan launched an exclusive EAA member insurance plan for powered parachutes and weight-shift control trikes. Initially this new plan was limited to just a few makes and models of aircraft, but today the EAA plan offers coverage for 25 different trike models made by seven manufacturers and 33 powered parachute models from nine manufacturers.

Insurance is available for pilots from student to ATPs, for personal use as well as dual flight instruction and sales demonstrations.
EAA’s powered parachute and weight-shift control trike plans are underwritten by the Old United Casualty Company (Specialty Aviation Underwriters, Inc. – aviation underwriting managers) and is administrated by Falcon Insurance Agency. Old United Casualty currently does not offer insurance for aircraft in Alaska, Montana, Louisiana, Hawaii, Washington DC, West Virginia, Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, Vermont, and New York.
