Default EAA Insurance in Canada - C-PLAN

Has anyone else received an email from the EAA offering their new insurance plan in Canada? Its called C-PLAN. http://www.eaainsurance.ca

Not trying to advertise for them... Just wondering if anyone has received an equivalent quote to compare to COPA or Park.

Rob
I emailed in for a quote on thursday and have not yet received a reply. I am pleased to see EAA reach out to it's Canadian members. Hopefully they will offer competitive rates.

I submitted a request today, having received my COPA/Marsh renewal email too. I guess I can compare quotes.

I was having web issues the morning they put their notice out. I phoned them in the morning and they had already received requests for 200 quotes. I suppose it will take awhile to here back from them.

Update:

I called this morning in hopes of finding out the status, and received an emailed quote back this afternoon. Their quote came in $1000 cheaper than my COPA insurance was in 2010.

Answering some questions before they come up:

1. Hull value, liability limits, number of seats, and deductibles, are all the same as my COPA coverage, with one exception i've been able to find: Baggage liability. COPA is $5000 per passenger, $100 deductible. EAA is $5000 total, no indication what the deductible is. I've asked the EAA insurer for a copy of the policy document to make a more complete comparison.

2. When I insured at the beginning of the year with COPA, I had a grand total of 10 hours of RV time, and about 325 hours total time. Renewing this year, i've put 50 hours on the RV in one year, and am now just under 400 hours total time. Maybe the lower rate reflects more experience with the plane?

3. There's no mention in EAA's coverage that i've seen (yet) about recreational aerobatics, nor formation flying, both of which are covered explicitly by COPA's Gold Wings package.

I'll update further if I get more info from the EAA provider.

Default C-PLAN is a broker, right?

Last time I insured with Park, the actual underwriter, if I have the jargon correct, was Global. ( which was further broken down into Mitsubishi aerospace or something, and a couple other outfit$ who have the buckets of money.

Why would the rate or coverage be different? who knows. I asked about a few potential exclusions, like private or grass strips, and in general, if the policy doesn't name them, then they are not excluded.
I still am uncomfortable when reading the policy if they use 'airport' and 'aerodrome'.....are they being tricky?

Just got my quotes today - hull not in motion is 20% cheaper than Copa Silver Wings. Hull in motion is 50% cheaper than COPA Gold Wings. Something tells me that Marsh Insurance's hegemony is about to come to an end in Canada!
