Re: REFLECTOR: Insurance

I have been working with an insurance broker in the Chicago area since
1991 and am satisfied with the pricing I have gotten from him.  I started
out with only a Cherokee 180, then bought a twin Navion in 1992.  When
our local EAA chapter had a oresentation by Avemco, I asked about cost
for both aircraft and was told "We won't insure the Navion".

I am currently carrying All risk 1 mil (1000 ded), 100K per passenger on
the Cherokee with 25 K on the hull and all risk not in motion (1000 ded)
with 1 mil liability (excluding passengers) and 20K on the Navion hull. 
The Navion is not flying.    Annual premium $1724.  I also have 31 K 
work in progess with 10%ded (value established by records) with 1 mil
liability excluding passengers on the 173 Elite in work.  Estimated cost
for completed A/C is $700 -900 per annum,.

The broker is:  Royal Air, 12159 South Pulaski, Alsip, IL 60658-1299  Ph
708-597-0770.  Ask for William H. Piggott, and mention my name.
