Avemco to Offer Insurance for Part-Time CFIs

As an effort to increase the number of active flight instructors, Avemco will be offering insurance coverage for CFIs not affiliated with flight school or FBO training programs who wish to conduct flight training in their own aircraft. According to Jim Lauerman, Avemco president, the additional endorsement will allow aircraft owners who are also CFIs (but whose instructing is incidental to their aircraft ownership) to instruct named pilots in their aircraft. A covered instructor can call Avemco to add a student to his policy and then be instructing that student the same day.
