Mooney Aircraft Insurance
Different airplanes have different insurance costs. Mooney aircraft are some of the easier aircraft in the industry to insure. Airplane insurance costs are determined by an assortment of underwriting criteria. Much of the criteria are dependent on the aircraft itself. The aircraft type and specific make and model combined with that aircraft’s specific loss ratios are an obvious factor in determining insurance cost. The second major factor in determining Mooney insurance costs is the actual pilot’s experience. Your home airport location and operating territory or mission are also taken into consideration.
The specific Mooney make and model that you choose can affect your insurance costs. Each aircraft make and model has “actuarial losses”. This is a math equation that shows over time how many losses each aircraft has compared to the number of units flying and the hours flown by those units. Our Mooney insurance carriers use very specific data to determine your rates. Another important factor in the aircraft type and how it affects aircraft insurance costs is the cost of and availability of replacement parts. The cost to repair a specific aircraft make and model can cause aircraft insurance prices to change.
Pilot experience is one of the most important things affecting Mooney airplane insurance costs. Higher time, more experienced pilots typically see lower aircraft insurance costs than lower time pilots. As the sophistication of the Mooney increases, the price difference can also change. Typically, the more complex the Mooney is to fly, the wider the spread in airplane insurance costs between experienced and inexperienced pilots.
The airport base you choose can affect airplane insurance costs. Although runway surface and runway length can somewhat affect aircraft insurance costs, the deciding factor can also be what type of aircraft you are flying from that strip. Mooney aircraft can operate out of almost any airport in the U.S., the pilots experience flying in and out of this airport can have an impact on the cost to insure a Mooney.
