Spoke with Andre yesterday, he told me AP Insurance is going up to cover my equipment, he said to cover losses they have paid out. Mine went up 354.00 a year and I never had a claim. Who has made claims if you don't mind confessing. Just wondered who I'm helping out with new equipment....

I think most of us self insure our equipment and I am wondering why you don't?
I self cover as I can afford a complete loss, if you can't I would suggest another occupation.

May I recommend this thread as "the lamest threat ever"

Lame dude,

David

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

I spoke with them (H&U), about the previous year what the claims were and how they could control the cost of claims. Insurance is a business and both the agent and underwriter need to make money or why even have the program. I’ve think that both Hill & Usher and the carrier have taken a big chance on this industry and we must take that into consideration. The contractors constantly try and shoot us down to the FAA AOPA and their peers by saying we don’t have insurance. At Tuesdays meeting at the Ames research center I stood up to ask the panel a question, when I said I was from the Remote Control Aerial Photography Association a question was met with question “do you guys have insurance?”, why yes we do I was able to answer! The contractors (ASTM) last time I’d heard were still writing up standards to get insurance. We must consider this program a blessing as it is really the only viable program available.

If you’d like to read more about the Ames meeting, check out the RCAPA Reporter…

Out, Patrick

This has already been discussed by Soundwave. He closed the thread. That's all I'll say about that.

Call it as you will but for the 250 last year I felt it was well worth the the additional coverage and peace of mind, going up to over 600 I'll probably opt to cover it myself. Liability is the big factor. I did not mean to start anything by posting my thread, I was mostly being humorous as per the frown, smile and the subject line. You may need to speak to a therapist about your issues David. My other half is one, I'll speak to her for you, maybe I can hook you up.

Might as well close this one also, it must be a touchy subject, haven't been on RR for some time due to the work schedule. Nice to see others waiting to pounce.
