Starr Aviation Partners with Aviation Safety Group for Pilot Reward Project

April 5, 2013

Starr Aviation (Starr), a division of Starr Indemnity & Liability Co., has partnered with the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) and Redbird Flight Simulations (Redbird) to reward participation of insureds in the Pilot Proficiency Project.

Available at major aviation events, the Project offers a series of FAA WINGS-approved seminars and simulator training scenarios that address common causes of general aviation accidents.

Qualified Starr policyholders participating in Project seminars and/or simulator training will receive the benefits of the accident forgiveness endorsement waiving any premium increase because of an accident occurring after the certification (certain overriding events excluded).

The first opportunity for pilots to earn the accident forgiveness endorsement will be during “Sun-n-Fun” in Lakeland, Florida, April 9–14, 2013. Pilots can sign up for an opportunity to “fly” one of eleven challenging scenarios in Redbird’s FMX full-motion simulator at the SAFE Tent (NE-006). Pilots can also attend project safety seminars, which will be conducted in the Florida Air Museum.

SAFE developed the Pilot Proficiency Project in 2010, partnering with Redbird to enable pilots to receive relevant recurrent training. SAFE represents more than 700 of the nation’s aviation educators, and provides resources to assist educators in developing skilled, knowledgeable and safe aviators.
