General Aviation Insurance

We insure all types of general aviation risks: from single aircraft on a ‘private business and pleasure’ basis to the largest commercial fleets and business jets. And it’s not just hull and liability insurance for fixed and rotor-wing aircraft - or even balloons and airships - that we offer: we also cover ground based risks such as fixed base operators, flying schools and clubs, drones (UAV) and GA service providers. Our general aviation clients span the world, with aircraft flying in more than 160 national airspaces.

With specialist aviation underwriters and claims staff in offices around the world, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) can provide you with general aviation insurance solutions tailored to your needs.
