Starr Insurance Companies has announced that its aviation division will make accommodations under its general aviation policies to extend some training and medical-certification deadlines for insured pilots until COVID-19-related social-distancing mandates are lifted.
“We quickly saw that COVID-19 mitigation efforts could affect pilots whose policies require an annual training event and pilots subject to regulatory aviation requirements,” said Steve Blakey, president of Starr Insurance. “We responded by building in time so our policyholders don’t risk losing their coverage.”
Until June 30, Starr Aviation will extend certain training and medical certificate deadlines. The company said that policyholders should speak to their brokers for specifics.
