Default Gallagher Aviation & Hurricane Irma


I just notified Jennifer Cummins at Gallagher that I will be unable to move the -12 if Irma becomes a factor in the Charleston, SC area. I have the aircraft disassembled for service bulletin maintenance and engine overhaul / upgrade. I sent Gallagher photos of the aircraft in its current state of disassembly. I received a callback from Jennifer 30 minutes after sending the email. She discussed my situation with the underwriters and they agreed to waive my 5% hurricane loss deductible in the event of a total loss of the aircraft.

What a great company! Hopefully this post will be of value for some of you that are insured through Gallagher and unable to move your aircraft.
