Home Run! AIG To Underwrite Insurance For Eclipse 500

Willis Global Aviation provides first premium estimates for the Very Light Jet

Eclipse Aviation has announced that AIG Aviation, Inc., a member company of American International Group, Inc. (AIG), has agreed to underwrite hull and liability insurance for the Eclipse 500 jet on behalf of the Member insurance companies of AIG. Additionally, insurance broker Willis Global Aviation has provided preliminary rate projections for the Eclipse 500 owner pilot market.

"AIG Aviation is confident in the Eclipse 500 jet and the pilot training program developed by Eclipse Aviation's management team," said William Lovett, vice president AIG Aviation, Inc.  "Quality training will be a critical element to a successful future for VLJs. AIG Aviation has recognized that the successful completion of the Eclipse 500 type rating and mentor program is the prerequisite to insurability."

"Willis has been working closely with aviation market underwriters and Eclipse personnel to develop hull and liability premiums that reflect the unique approach to training that Eclipse has established as well as the state-of-the art design and manufacture of the Eclipse 500 jet," said Joe Trotti, CEO of Willis Global Aviation, North America.

In their commitment to insure Eclipse 500 owners, AIG Aviation and Willis Global Aviation join underwriter Global Aerospace, which announced in 2002 it would offer insurance to Eclipse pilots who successfully complete Eclipse's training program.
