All Antique Aircraft Should Be Well-Grounded in Aviation Liability

You may have caught sight of one at a holiday air show or been within arm’s length of one on display at a museum. Perhaps it was a WWI fighter plane, a biplane or a replica from the Golden Age of Flight (the years between WWI and WWII). Antique, classic, heritage, historic, veteran, or vintage aircraft may be obsolete but they’re anything but forgotten. In fact, there are several organizations that cater specifically to antique aircraft, including Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), EAA Vintage Aircraft Association, and Antique Airplane Association, Inc. (AAA), the oldest antique organization in the world, formed back in 1953 by people with “a deep-seated interest in old airplanes, for the purpose to fly, to preserve, to share and to promote the early flying machine.”


Protecting property and people — in the air and on the ground.

The owners of antique planes are typically aviation museums, armed forces, or private enthusiasts. In every case, Aviation Insurance is essential to ensure the security of property and person. Prime Insurance Company offers coverage for commercial and private operations, including property coverage for aircraft and passenger if grounded, grounded not in motion, and in-flight or transport. Liability, hull, and physical property coverage are also available for many types of aircraft, including experimental and home built aircraft.

In addition, Prime Insurance offers customized coverage for aviation associations, clubs, flight schools and others considered a hard-to-place risk. We also provide coverage for hangar liability, events, and demonstrations such as experimental enthusiasts events, group or club member fly-ins, public air shows, and skills competitions.
