St. Louis, MO (PressExposure) June 05, 2009 -- Seaplanes, flying boats or float planes, no matter the type of plane, any aircraft that takes off or lands in the water can be difficult to insure. With a limited number of carriers underwriting seaplanes, it can be challenging for individuals to find a company who will insure their specific seaplane risk. Travers represents the entire aviation marketplace and therefore can provide all types of seaplane insurance.
âOur founder and my grandfather, Bob Travers, started flying seaplanes in the early 1930s and in WWII he became the captain of the PBY Catalina Flying Boat,â said Chris Travers, Sales Manager at Travers and Associates. âHis passion for this type of aircraft has always been evident. We grew up hearing stories about his flying excursions, as he would show off his model PBY aircraft. My grandfather knew firsthand the importance of proper seaplane insurance. He also knew how difficult it was to find a good policy. Because of his dedication to this niche area of the aviation insurance industry, Travers and Associates can insure every type of seaplane with extremely competitive policies.â
Today, Travers and Associates are long term Seaplane Pilots Association members. The company insures a significant amount of the seaplanes in America and as a result, has outstanding long term relationships with all the underwriters that will take on seaplane risk.
âWhen it comes to seaplane insurance, many underwriters only cover one type of plane,â said Chris Travers. âBecause of our long history delivering exceptional seaplane insurance, we are able to find policies that meet our customer's needs at an extremely competitive rate.â
