September 18th, 2019 at 8:00 PM Eastern: "Insurance Claims – What They Can Teach Us” presented by Mike Adams, Senior VP, Underwriting, Avemco Insurance Company

This presentation discusses the 6 most common causes of loss from a review of Avemco claims data coupled with some personality traits of pilots that may lead them to having an accident or not having one. The personality traits information is based on the Airmanship Education Research Initiative (AERI) conducted by Dr. Bill Rhodes and partially funded by Avemco. The end result of the study and this presentation is to help pilots identify areas of training and traits that may contribute to having an accident. Click here for more information and to register.
