Flight Schools

Operating a successful quality flight school is not for the timid.  In the best of times, it is difficult.  In the current economic climate, it may be the most challenging business in the aviation industry.  As one flight school owner said, ” You have to be passionate about it, or crazy… or both!”

Yet the future of general aviation depends on the continued development of quality, professional minded pilots, wanting to fly as a career or just for their own pleasure and business.

Profit margins are usually pretty thin.  And when it comes to insurance, it can be one of your biggest operating expenses.  A quality aviation insurance broker who understands your flight school business can make all the difference in the world.  Your aviation insurance broker should be able to do more for you than just get insurance quotes.  They should offer a full spectrum of risk management and insurance solutions.  The ultimate goal is to help you become more profitable as well as enhance your insurability, making you a “preferred risk” for which underwriters will compete.

Call Jim Gardner today for a personal consultation.  If you are a new flight school, we would like to help you get started on a solid foundation.  If you are a successful flight school, we would like to help you stay that way.  Ask Jim to advise you on the availability of a monthly reporting form or insurance by the flight hour which could improve your cash flow management.
