XL Group Collaborates with Citation Jet Pilots Association to Provide Aviation Insurance
New York - August 20, 2014
XL Group’s Aviation business, in collaboration with the Citation Jet Pilots (CJP), is providing competitive insurance programs to Citation owners and pilots who complete the association’s safety education seminars annually. According to Eric Donofrio, North America Aviation Manager at XL Group, “We’re pleased to offer CPJ’s membership our competitive rates by a team of specialized underwriters and claims specialist, most who are pilots themselves and have a firsthand understanding of aviation risk. Just as a driver that takes defensive driving courses to improve their driving skills and risk awareness, we see pilots who take on opportunities to improve their skills and safety awareness by taking advantage of CJP’s educational seminars as better risks to insure. And, as expected, better risks receive more competitive insurance rates.” Pilots participating in CJP’s safety education seminars are eligible for a 10% “no claims bonus” on their aviation hull coverage from the XL Group insurance companies. The safety education seminars are offered at the CJP Annual Convention, which will be held September 17-21 at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. XL Group insurance companies offer insurance coverage to traditional and specialized aviation companies throughout the world. About the Citation Jet Pilot association Since its inception in 2007, CJP has gone from a small online email exchange group to a full-fledged organization with a multitude of benefits, top-tier events and opportunities for members to exchange ideas and interact. The organization’s core mission is unchanged: to help like-minded Citation owners operate their aircraft in a safe, professional and efficient manner.
