Also try "Sky" Scott Smith. I sold my 12 last year but for 2019 full coverage was just less than $1000 for $90k hull with Global. 2020 is $1150 with them for my RV-7A for $115k hull. I'm getting a discount for high RV hours but I'm hearing about $1800 for a newbie from folks with recently finished 12s.

Just out of curiosity, what per seat liability limit do you have (i.e., $100,000, $200,000, or none)?

Default Insurance agent

I just bought an RV-6a and needed insurance. Went with the folloing broker.

Adam Troendle, CEO/President
Eagles Wings Financial, LLC
Adam@EaglesWingsFinancial.com
Office: 806-416-1002
Cell: 507-273-8605
www.EaglesWingsFinancial.com

They had 7 quotes for me in 2 days. The best was Old Republic
$1014/yr with
$70,000 hull value
$100,000/$1,000,000 liability,
$5000/person medical-

I currently have 1 hr in an RV-6A. The rate will go down after I have accumulated flight time.
To bind coverage I need a checkout in the make and model aircraft by a properly certificated flight instructor prior to sole PIC operations. The flight instructor administering the checkout must have at least 25 hours in the Make & Model.

Thanks for the info. My tailwheel RV-8 was $41 more than the tricycle RV-7A for the same coverage.

Yet another vote for Gallagher from me. I've had almost the same experience as DaleB except I bought my plane 3 years ago before I finished my license. It's been in the $1300-1400 range every year. I'm now at 300 hours.

Whatever you do find a broker that does lots of Vans planes. They know which companies to work with.

I see a lot of votes for Gallagher, but when I got a quote in June they wanted $3950 to insure the RV12 for a 65k hull value. I went elsewhere. At the time I had a little less than 100 hours.

I've been going through EAA / Falcon Ins. for my RV-12 for several years. This year the initial quote was 28% higher than in 2019. After raising concerns about the unexpected bump, revised quote came down to $1,002 - which was a little lower than in previous years. (Glad I asked!) 830+ total hours, 600+ in type.

$70K hull,
Standard $100K & $1 million liabilities
$10K per person medical.
