Upcoming broadcasts:

February 19th, 2019 at 8:00 PM Eastern: “Insurance Claims – What Happened?” presented by Mike Adams, Senior Vice President of Underwriting, Avemco Insurance Company

This presentation uncovers the back story of insurance claims/incidents/accidents that occurred at some point between taking the airplane out of the hangar up until putting it back in the hangar. Learning more about the behind the scenes details of accidents offers everyone a chance to take away something they can use to be a better, safer pilot both in their personal flying and as a flight instructor. To assist in the transfer of knowledge, this presentation includes photos that you’ll not find elsewhere or in government reports.

Mike Adams earned his Private Pilot Certificate in 1983 in Hillsboro, OR prior to starting his career in aviation insurance. He joined Avemco Insurance Company in 1986 as regional sales manager in the Pacific Northwest handling commercial insurance ranging from full service FBOs to the CFI with a single aircraft operation, and non-commercial products for aircraft owners and renters. While in this position, he added an Instrument Rating to his ticket, nearly a requirement when flying in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. During that time, he served a term as chapter president then as state president of the Oregon Pilots Association.

Mike’s more than 36 years of combined experience with general aviation and aviation insurance helps pilots understand why many of Avemco’s coverages and underwriting decisions are designed to help keep them safe. Mike currently leads Avemco’s underwriting operations at its home office in Frederick, MD.
